Around 4:30pm, I made it to the University of Montana at Missoula. Despite many years attending college, this was the first time I had ever slept in a dorm room. The view from my room.

I had a great time at the Confluences of Cultures symposium. I learned lots of things and met many very interesting people.

In fact, the entire trip was fantastic. I hope you have enjoyed looking at my picutres.
