LSAMP Global Awareness Trip Summer 2009
This blog is the travel journal for the LSAMP students selected to participate in the inaugural "global awareness" trip to the Medical University of Innsbruck. We will be in Austria from June 29-July 17,2009, during which time we will conduct science projects in three different laboratories, as well as experience the culture and the beautiful regions of Austria, the land of Mozart, the Sound of Music, Sacher Torte, strudel and schnitzel. Your fearless leader, the cyberprof, is preparing for what should be an exciting and informative trip. My recommendations to you are to read up on some basic phrases (even though most everyone in the major cities speaks some English), and begin making a list of places you would like to visit, things you would like to see, and foods you would like to sample. Bring a camera, a good appetite, and a sturdy pair of walking shoes. Pack light, but leave room for souvenirs.
