But I may be the least qualified as an archaeologist of the group with my business major, as most of the others are archaeology or anthropology or classics majors.

I am living in one of the rooms in the farmhouse with another girl named Isa, who is a very sweet girl and a Theater, Art History and Classics major at Swarthmore.
