So far the class is really cool. Bonus points because the man teaching it, Hank Wesselman, is also a physical anthropologist, and has been lately in Ethiopia working with fossil mammals. He works with Tim White out of Berkeley, who published the most beautiful book on human skeletal anatomy ever seen - stunning photography, and brilliant text. He mentioned they are about to publish some research I am dying to see. And he's a fantastic story-teller and teacher. I'm really glad I'm taking this class.

Note to Uly & Carol - I'm staying out here again tonight, there's the chance to do some post-class stuff with people in the evening that I really don't want to miss. Would you look in on Xiombarg and make sure she has enough water? Thanks.
