Our day at the Octagon Lodge in Karatu was spent as a workday for everyone. The photography students focused on designing the book and 7-minute video that they’ll be presenting at the end of their trip, while the wildlife group filled out survey sheets and wrote in their journals. In addition, the students worked in their four groups to make progress with their corresponding article assignments. They enjoyed a short shopping trip in the Karatu village, escorted by Maggie, where students bartered jewelry and explored a common market full of beans, spices, and fresh avocados. The day ended with a delicious grilled dinner, showers, and fresh laundry.
