Trip to Chile, pt. 2

Things have been pretty busy over the past several days. Between work at the museum in Caldera, fielwork and spending time working on manuscripts I haven't really been able to post as much as I wanted to. Anyways, like I mentioned on the previous post, we've been spending some time studying fossil material at the museum during the day, while in the afternoon we work on manuscripts, abstracts and the like.

One of the benefits of staying in a coastal town is the fresh seafood, which we buy at the market and then cook it ourselves. Just because we are on the field it doesn't mean we have to eat poorly!
Fresh albacore tuna fillet and shrimp and veggie skewers. It was delicious!!

We've also been out in the field. We revisited the Cerro Ballena site (above), as well as some other localities. More on this on the next post, so stay tuned!
