It is about one and a half month to my next trip to KRR and working with the wild Damaraland mole-rats. Just yesterday I got the news that one of my field assistants got her visa to join and the field team are ready and set to go! Very exciting.
End on June I went the annual KRR meeting, this year hosted in Zürich. Me and my supervisor went by train from Sweden (have to try and compensate for all flights to South Africa somehow…) and stopped for a hike in the Alps the days before the meeting. Good thing I got at least some hiking dine this summer, all July I’ve been sitting at the office and August will be busy with ESEB and GENECO meeting before heading back to South Africa.
Time flies. More than 6 months of my PhD have already passed??????
