fieldwork

Veracruz Day #4

Today we headed out to do our field work with the Urban Lab at Boca del Rio. In all we collected samples from 4 different sites.

Site 1 was visit to a kids daycare centre where in the near future a veggie garden will be installed. 2014-11-26 17.31.502014-11-26 17.33.20

The house of Santiago’s mum was the site of our 2nd visit. They have a lovely 2 hectares with dogs, chickens, ducks, pigs and a large veggie garden. And would you believe it, the family is from Catalunya! As they say, the world is a tissue… (or is that only in Spanish???)2014-11-26 18.18.54 2014-11-26 18.20.29

We then headed back to the lab to take some samples from the land there before riding bikes provided by the Boca del Rio council to take some samples from the beach.

All in all a great day out in the field (much nicer than being in the office!!!) and a huge thanks to Alejandra, Alexandro and Santiago from the Laboratorio Urbano and Citycultores for being our guides for the day!
