I think you are familiar with the routine, reader! Tuesday is often caveday. And how many different blog posts can one write about plodding around underground? At some point there's not much news-worthy about it anymore. And last week was one of those trips. And yes it was a Valentine's trip, but that does not have much influence other than that it's not very well-attended, as some of our men are kept at home on a night like that by their significant others. So we went underground with a select few, we took pictures, we had a good time: hardly revolutionary! But John took some pictures that were so nice I decided to post them anyway. So after all: a posting on last week's trip down a small but pretty adit!

This may look somewhat non-descript, but it is a fault outcropping in the wall of a tunnel. And water just comes streaming out! I found that geologically interesting. The rock doesn't look permeable, but look at how much water makes its way out here...
This blog started as a tool to keep my Dutch friends informed on my whereabouts when I moved abroad. It quickly also became an external memory for my own use. It largely failed as a stage for discussions on whatever is worth discussing. And it has become a way of sharing my scientific knowledge with a lay audience. And who knows, it could become even more! And whatever it is you are looking for among all this: welcome.
