    [post_content] => Dear family and friends of North India 6 week students,

We're pleased to announce that everyone is back in the US safe and sound after the flight home from Delhi. In recent memory, I think it's safe to say that this has been one of the more remarkable North India programs. We want to thank all parents sincerely for the trust that you put in us; we know there were some times in which you'd love to have heard what was going on in the moment. But we can rest assured the tales will be told. Can't thank you enough.

Best,

Justin

The team has made it back from the jungle. The group saw several orangutans as well as many different groups of other monkey species. It rained all night, but overall it was a really wonderful experience. Expect more compelling tellings from the students in the days to come.

The team is presently making their way back to Java, where they’ll enter into homestay in Jogya and begin Bahasa language classes and ISPs. Stay tuned for more Yaks from the group.

Best,

Justin

In Baiguliu, they experienced a slow pace of life, great hikes, and marking Qingming Festival (the annual "tomb sweeping" festival when families visit and tidy up graves and honor late family members and ancestors). Baiguliu Village is ethnically Miao (or Hmong, as this ethnic group is often known in the US). The group also joined in planting corn, plowing and spreading manure (see below). More to come soon, now that the group is back in internet range and en route from Guiyang (capital city of Guizhou Province) to the city of Chongqing, where students will be leading the planning and making arrangements as they get ready for "X-phase" (student-led expedition).IMG_0298 IMG_0299 IMG_0300  IMG_0302

We are nearing the end of our week-long stay in Bangdong Village, three hours to the east of the city of Lincang. Earlier in the week we learned about the growing of coffee and tea, both important commodities in this region. Students have participated in village life by plowing the fields, picking coffee, helping with the construction of new homes, and attending banquets and dance circles. Thursday was market day, and we travelled to the main town area for fruits, cakes, and haircuts.
Sunday is our last night here, we'll return to Lincang on Monday, and travel further to Yunnan's southern border region - Xishuangbanna - on Tuesday!

Dear friend and family,

Here are a few images from the past week. The group is currently in the highland town of Ocongate, where they are busy preparing for their first trek.  They will hike for five days around Mt. Ausangate, one of the most sacred peaks in the Andes.  The group is coming together well, and all are excited for this first foray into the mountains.  Stay tuned for more student posts!

Best wishes,

Julianne

    [post_content] => Dear participants in the Fall 2016 Dragons Myanmar semester course,

Many of you are probably asking if it’s possible to vote in this year’s election cycle, and if so, how to go about doing so while on-course. In many areas of the world where we work voter enfranchisement is a right denied to many citizens. This knowledge can present a stark realization for students who have taken certain “rights” for granted. Often times these small epiphanies on-course catalyze those US students to action. This Fall students will have the ability to influence the direction and leadership of their nation, and their own lives, through the democratic process.

Many Dragons semester students will be seeking to vote for the first time in their lives this November and we want to ensure that everyone has the ability to cast their vote and exert agency. It’s a thrilling moment, one of great responsibility, and we wish to honor that right for all students.
In order to help you navigate the absentee voting process, we have compiled some websites below that outline some important information about voting in this year’s election cycle. It’s important to note that every state has different laws governing absentee ballots. Just over half of all US states allow mail in ballots without excuse, while around twenty others require an excuse. A few are mail-in only. Please refer to the following links and carefully read the instructions as you prepare to cast a ballot in your area.

Please click on the following link to apply for your absentee ballot application.
Please click on the following link for absentee and early voting laws by state.
Please click on the following link for more detailed information about voting laws, voter requirements and time frames in your state.

In order to register for your absentee ballot, you will need to provide a local address abroad. Please use the following address to register and receive your absentee ballot:

*Your Name*
259/263, Anawratha Rd., Pbdn, Yangon, Myanmar

Please take the time to register before you depart for the fall semester in order to ensure that you will be eligible to vote abroad!

Best wishes!
