Unfortunately, we were only able to cross 115 meters of mud... the Waker was too heavy and the mud too muddy:-)
But we still believe that "se pueede". We maybe need some medium of transportation technically evolved....something like the 007`s car. Let's see if we find anything similar here in the Beni.

I want to go inside a lake that is surrounded by 300 meters of such a mud that you cannot get there neither with Carretòn. They say that the last year even the tractor sunk when it was just few meters far from the edge of the lake....
Will our hero achieve to make a drill in the middle of the lake??? Stay tuned and you will see...

Hi, the field work is going on with the help of cutting edge technologies!!
the rest of the group is in the river for a 4 days trip to the mouth of Rio Grande, and I am having some free time to update the blog.
Everything is OK, we are getting a lot of good data and maybe, for the first time since 2001, I am starting to understand something!!!

It's cool, isn't it? This is the way back from Estancia El Cerrito, located about 80 Km North of Santa Ana de Yacuma. In the car with me also Henne (the 2008`s project leader) Bernhard (the project assistant) and our guide (I don't remember the name...). This year Bernhard will be with us again in the Beni together with Anna (the other PhD student in the current project) and 3 master students; we will meet them later on this Blog. Henne is now in Australia doing his postDoc and having fun I suppose:-)

Hi, the idea behind this blog is that you can follow me during the next field campaign in Bolivia. I will put photos, videos and I will try to update this blog as often as I can. The Blog will be in English because it is good for the CV:-)
I will leave for Bolivia next July 23rd, for the time being I will put some photos from past campaigns.
