The last of the 12th series of “Far Away Places” talks featured Dr. Michael Trapasso, who has been teaching Geography at WKU since 1980. He shared his research experience in South Africa where he ventured into several of its natural parks and had numerous encounters with exotic and sometimes dangerous animals. The talk happened on Thursday, April 12 at Barnes & Noble Bookstore in Bowling Green, Kentucky. “Far Away Places” talk series are organized by WKU Libraries. Between mid-May and early June of 2011 he visited Kruger National Park, Shuslui Umfolozi National Park and the Mpumalanga (Crocodile) River and “lived to tell about it.”
