I was heartened to learn that, although the lecture was common, there was enthusiasm for different pedagogical paradigms. 

Jon and Alejna suggest that I should be posting 360 degree panoramic pictures demonstrating the conspicuous lack of gorlllas while I'm still in the states. Otherwise, it'd just be photos of me filling out forms ...
