PKAP Season Almost Over

Well, let’s see. First I need to apologize for my lack of posts and not putting up pictures from my trip to Turkey, but the last few days have been very hectic. Yesterday was almost non-stop. I had a 3 1/2 hour meeting with a representative from the Cyprus Department of Antiquities so that we could hand over our collected material to them. Then I had to run to the hardware store to buy a metal pipe and a big hammer. Right after a quick lunch I took our wall paintings specialist, Sarah Lepinski and her crew (2 kids, a nanny, and 10 bags) to the airport. Then Michael Brown and I went out to the British base and gave a brief tour of the site to some of the base personnel. After they left, we took the big hammer and beat the pipe into the ground as a datum point on one of the known GPS points. This actually took awhile since we had trouble finding a spot where the pipe (about 2 feet long) would actually go all the way in. Then to finally finish up fieldwork we took some more pictures of the walls around Vigla. We got back to the hotel at 7:45 and then grabbed a quick dinner and I worked on printing out our final report and a press release. This morning I am working on the CAARI paper (to be delivered tomorrow morning) and will be making a final trip to the museum to store some items and wash the layers of dust off our rental car. Tomorrow I will be going to Nicosia to attend the CAARI conference and deliver our paper. Sunday is my final day on the island and I need to start packing now since the Larnaka airport is a madhouse on Sudays and I will need to get there probably 3 hours in advance of my flight. Anyway, about 92 hours left before I am back in Indiana.
