Kaiti. I actually just sent the reply a few minutes ago. I'm also not a fan
of the default mail options in IOS 10. Please let us all know how it goes
with the internship.

Oops-Sorry, Chris. I didn't see your message originally. I'm really not
liking how mail on the iPhone is set up now. Anyway, I'll also keep that in
mind. 

I should also note that I think transportation in the day should be pretty
minimal. I have reached out to two students from school who have had this
internship. One seemed unsure about transportation and how I would do the
job, but the other was really wasn't phased by this as he told me he only
usually worked in one or two sites a day and thought that would be doable
for me.
