I was supposed to be in Moorea already. That's an island in French Polynesia. I am being sent there to help get tissue samples from clown fish. It sounds like great fun. We scuba dive, find the cute little fish living on their anemone friends, abduct them, cut a piece of their tail fin off, and let them go.

I was scheduled to spend 38 days out there but, at the last minute, discovered that the French require that I get a visa to be out there for over 30 days. I scurried around to get my paperwork together and get my butt up to the French consulate before my scheduled departure date (last sunday). I didn't work out though. They turned down my visa application (that's a long and rather boring story so I'll skip it). Now I have changed my departure date to July 16th so that I will be there for 30 days.

So assuming that I get out there and that I have internet access, I will post more crap next week.
