Hello there, the MSc field course team is now complete. Yesterday we teamed up with the students that wanted a day of rest, whereas those who went to Lisbon first arrived in Barra today and already had a visit to the beach. Abdi and Donovan were preparing fish and it sure smelt good.

So tomorrow we are going to start this thing. Ilja and I already did some cruising in the Vagos area today to see if our geological excursion points had not vanished. This may seem a bit strange, the dissapearance of a 60 million year old rock outcrop, but it was the fate of our Trias excursion point a few years back which disappeared behind a newly built concrete  structure. No surprises there today, fortunately.

Now it is up to me to organize all maps and make sure that we can have a smooth start tomorrow. To be continued for sure...
