Thrill core

Today the weather turned out to be rather wet, but we didn’t care at all, because we planned to have a more closer look at the drill cores anyway. Very interesting and revealing. After we finished that, we had quick lunch at a local ..errrr.. restaurant and drove to Sa Pa, which seems to be a giant construction site.  Not so nice on the first sight.

First day of field work

After we went to not less than three authorities to get official permissions, we finally went to the field, where we had a hard, but spectacular day.

Walking around Lai Chau

While waiting for the permission of the local authorities to visit our main goal Nam Xe, we had a small excursion to one of the spiky mountains around Lai Chau.

Darf ich vorstellen…

unsere süße Maus Sarah, geboren am 26.11.13 mit 3640 g. Sie hat sich dann doch noch 4 Tage mehr Zeit gelassen und sich geputzt. Wir sind sehr stolz auf die Kleine und den Großen.
