If July 2015 was the summer of heat and forest fire smoke, 2016 was the opposite. We had wet weather (four days!), and cold enough to need the wood stove going to warm people and clothing. As always, there were many fine memories: fieldwork, camaraderie, great meals, inspiring guest speakers, and the boat trip along the coast. It was the most diverse group so far, with students originating in Italy, Japan, China, Eritrea, and visiting students from Wales and Iran!
