Have project..

Will travel.

I am off again, for nearly two weeks. I hope to be back in Dun on the 18th, though I might be too preoccupied with excavating the dirt under my fingernails to do any posting then..yes, too much information, I agree.

So let's talk of prettier things..
I am going off to walk in the Pindar valley. My colleague and I will be conducting a baseline study in three mid-altitude villages (2500-3000 masl) in the valley. We will be staying in the villages, chatting up strangers, counting flowers in meadows and measuring flows in springs. While not strictly work related, we also plan to squeeze a half day out and go as far up on the path to the glacier as is possible without any technical know-how: the Zero point.

Tough job, but someone's got to do it.

I will of course be posting stories and pictures when i return, but till then, here is a good account of the same trek.
