First Day in Mound Bayou

We're here!
It has been a long first day, but fun nonetheless. After a bit of a delay in getting set up at our quarters, we did the orientation tour to acquaint students with the community.

Afterwards, we picked up our needed supplies at the local Dollar General and got sandwich and breakfast items. We were too tired and hungry to cook. After clean-up, we drove over to Cleveland as neither student has ever been in this area. Part of the research is to look at the differences in the communities in the region.

Tomorrow begins our cemetery mapping and more work on asset mapping. One thing we were not prepared for is how hot it is here already!
