Hi, a lot of time has passed since the last post...We are now in Trinidad,

we got a wonderful little apartment, and, as you see in the picture, we are already working. Here we are doing a survey on a lake's shore:-)

Esperando el almuerzo...


Two women we met here in the airport, with whom we are spending some good time. They have just given us the vouchers for lunch.

Still in Buenos Aires


Our flight has several hours of delay....we were supposed to be in Santa Cruz looking for a good churrasco....but...
This is Anna, the other PhD student, who will go Up and Down in Moxos for 10 weeks too.

Working hard

video
From the previous posts one can get the idea that we are going to Bolivia to have fun....that is right!! But we have also some work to do...really hard work. In the heat of the humid tropics, we work under the burning sun!! In the video, from 2008, you can see us while we are extracting the soil sampler filled with sediments from an oxbow. Me and Bernhard working, Henne playing Martin Scorsese.....

El Cerrito

video
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:-)

Follow me to Bolivia


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.
