Photos of friends and collegues

Here I have collected some photos of my friends and collegues. There are many fringe benefits to doing fieldwork from remote camp sites. For one thing, you get to know a lot of interesting and entertaining people. The purpose of publishing these photos to the web is not to embarrass anybody, but to reflect the spirit of fieldwork...
