Almost everything on this blog is a bit behind.  Or way behind.  But just for posterity’s sake, it’s time for a bit of an update.


We’re moving to Madison this fall so Brett can start a PhD in Agricultural and Applied Economics at the University of Wisconsin!  Brett applied to schools in November before we left for South America, and starting during our time in Colombia was receiving responses and scheduling phone calls with potential future advisors and trying to navigate the details of various offers. Over the last three weeks we’ve been wandering the country to visit schools and see friends, and after visiting the top three options, we decided Madison in the place for us. We rented an apartment (a “flat,” technically, since it’s the first floor of a house) and are looking forward to moving at the beginning of August. Come visit!

  1. Congrats! I’ve been loving your blogs and hearing about all your sights, smells, tastes, and adventures around the globe! I think you will love Madison! My husband went there for undergrad and we try to make an annual Fall retreat out there for a home football game. Love the cheese curds and farmer’s market!

    • Thanks, Lisa. We’re also really excited for football and cheese curds. We’d love to share some beer and cheese curds with you some time when you come to visit.
