A very lame 100th post

As the title says this is my 100th post and I definitely had something more decadent in mind for this milestone, than saying "I'm back, but too tired to say anything", but that's more or less what I'm going to say here. It has been more than a week since I returned from the field but I feel as energetic as a wet towel. The field season was harder than usual for many reasons and where I am usually tired after being in the field, this time I am drained. The trip was ill-planned due to lack of our usual collaborator and the new group didn't really work well together. We have travelled more than usual, been away for longer time and had more scientific focuses than I remember from any other field trip and while the results are exciting I'm just bone-tired from trying to keep the whole circus together. I am working on my recovery by doing very little, eating plenty of fresh strawberries and reading an extremely funny book written in my mother tongue, where for once I DO get all the cultural references.

Basically, I just wanted to let you know that I'm here, even if I'm not speaking much, and that I'm on my way back to blogging.
