town, lab, ect.

Here are some pictures from Friday to give you a sense of the town where we’re staying.

If you’re not a scientist here then you’re probably a tourist.  There is even a big fancy hotel to stay in.

I got started doing some lab work.  Here’s the filtering set-up.  I will do more of that today on our new samples.
