I will get around to writing a more professional and witty summary of the strange human named Petra who is running this blog, but for now all you need to know is that I am an archaeologist, writer, and traveler who loves to sing. I attend Hamilton College and am an Archaeology and Creative Writing double major.

I also work with an incredible non-profit organization called The Mongolian Bankhar Dog Project and references to our work will certainly appear in my writing! Follow us on Facebook here to find out what we do and get some really cool updates from the field!

I would be nothing without my sister, who you see with me in two of the above photos. Love you, Oak.
