I’m heading up to the field station today, and as always, I’ve been looking forward to it for a long time!

There’s something about the serenity of the field station that makes me fall in love. Over and over again.

It’s that combination of trees, sky and untouched land.

Far from the technology radar and other distractions…

Last time we went up, we stayed for four days,

…sowing a total of 720 experiments.

It was a total team effort!

This time, we go up to monitor the plants.

While we work, three solar ovens will cook for us.

Huge portions of tasty famine food. We like!

Last time, the villagers brought us dessert (millet cakes)!

I’m not sure how long I will be staying this time,

201107-p1510042

…but if I’m lucky, I get to stay the night just so that I watch the sun set,

201107-p1500589

…and then rise over serenity in the morning.

This is by far the most precious part!
