An uneventful second day. We continue to remove the "contaminated" surface layer. Since we're on a slight slope, we're trying to level out our square. We're about a third of a meter down our podium wall and only a few centimeters on the other side. Just rocks and dirt so far. But hey, look what's popping up just outside our square. A nice column drum. We expect to start finding lots of those soon.Here's a picture of our noble crew, John, Allison and Sarah. Just 4 of us though we get two more tomorrow, late arrivals due to finals. John also has a blog that I've linked to on the left. We sure have a nice view, don't we?
