Quote by Andrew Zimmern

I saw this quote on Instagram today, and it made me think about the Out of Eden Learn project, and the goals – looking beyond what’s in front of you and noticing new details in your neighborhoods as you make your maps.  In class you are watching Paul walk with a group of students from Georgia. Watch how he models slow journalism and teaches students to look for small details. India is an amazing place with so much history and culture. Try new things, meet new people.

Books, Reading, & Postcards

15 Jun

I can’t believe I have only been away from Chennai for one week. I hope you are all having a nice vacation…and reading some books. I just finished a book on Magellan, the explorer who sailed around the world seeking the Spice Islands. It was a really good book, and I learned a lot about him that I never learned in school or university. I’d love to get a post card from you of your travels or where you live. I emailed you my school and home address before school ended. If you send me a postcard, I promise to send you a postcard (email me your address before July 25th if you send it). :>) I am currently in Mexico and will be adding some photos to my Twitter feed. – Mr. Martin
