Winter here in Kirksville came, then left, then recently came back with a vengance. A week ago we were enjoying temperatures close to 60 degrees and now it is as you can see in the picture, cold. This poor bike is one of our spare bikes that was given to us by a friend and gets to spend the winter outside due to a shortage of storage space. In spite of the cold, muggy, and miserable weather, things are still quite well. This week is crazy and it is only Monday. I have another big exam this week and a final for Immunology next monday. I spent way to much of my time studying this last weekend and that is not going to change anytime soon. I put a deposit down for the Himalayan trip so it looks like I will be heading to Northern India this summer for some medical humanitarian work. I'm pretty excited and in the process of trying to raise some funds to cover the expenses. Missouri winters are turning out to be colder than I expected.
