This week was off for me since I missed both sessions of class. Unfortunately I was not in Yucatan, but at home sick in bed. When I was able to gather the energy, however, I read the textbook and did the work which I figured we would be working on in the lab. In other news I met two girls at a party who work for the farmland values project doing GIS. They had some interesting information for me about the field of GIS. They also regularly frequent the Wednesday GIS Brew Company meetings, which I am now considering attending.
