The Situation...

For the next four months, I will be studying sustainable development in Thailand. The ISDSI program involves language study, cultural exchange elements like homestays, and expedition-based courses in which we will immerse ourselves in the culture and ecology of the forested mountains of the Thai-Burmese border, the mangrove swamps and islands of the coastal region, and the Mun and Yom Rivers. My decision to enroll in this particular program stemmed from a need for a more experiential learning experience than Barnard could offer and an interest in the environmental anthropology issues that are the focus of the program.
