My name is Nate Blumenthal and I’m super excited to be joining you all in going on the Mekong trip. I grew up in a town called West Hartford in Connecticut and will be heading off to Middlebury College this February. This summer I have been working at a restaurant and on the campaign of a candidate who is running for Governor of Connecticut. My passions are politics, food, and people. I’m stoked to meet you all and to learn a ton on our upcoming adventure!
