The first part of the expedition is over and we now met with the second group, and we're rearranging the materials to move in Chile to the Tyndall.
The expedition was ultimately a success for all scientists who were able to work well in the field or in the lab tent thanks to amazing weather conditions and good team work of the whole group.

First news from Perito Moreno

A single bearer. Not enough for an expedition with so much scientific material. So the transport to the refuge Buscaini took two trips of about 7 hours to cover the 12 kilometers that separate it from the starting point of the path.
The start was not hopeful. But luckily it was at least mitigated by the absence of cold. Indeed, from a real presence of an abnormal hot that even allows to move and work in T-shirt. Not a good news for the existence of the glacier!

La Venta meets La Karst

The island of Palawan is one of the most uncontaminated paradises of the Philippines where the choice is embarrassing between beaches and awesome beauty bays. Carla and I remain on the island after the expedition, as always held by a long list of wishes not least the caves.
