Last week we all accompanied Papa and a mapmaker/geologist on a trip around the lake. This was a follow-up to a trip that the research geologist made with Papa, William and a few others two weeks ago. Mr. Lauri, the geologist, was doing work concerning erosion around the lake.

During our five day trip with slept and ate on the boat stopping at different places around the Sobradinho Lake where Mr. Lauri needed to take measurements and photos. The boys got to learn a little about the man’s work and using his fancy GPS mapping devices. We all learned a little more about the lake and how to get the go-Kart on and off in the boat in a hurry! The boys saw some wild seriemas (road runner type birds), green parakeets, and lots of lizards. Ah, and we opened our chemistry books twice!
