After lunch we ventured back to Lake Mateus. It was very windy and started to snow as we were half way up the hill. We even thought about turning back at one point but so dedicated are we to our science that we continued on. We managed to collect two cores along our transect, despite the strong winds which almost blew us over over at times. So it was challenging. But at the end of the day the sun came out briefly.
I left the UK 4 weeks ago today … this means I am almost half way through this trip already – how time flies!
