The unofficial site of the IDC-6 field trips in the Deccan dyke swarms and Himalaya

Deccan dyke swarms, January 29 - February 3, 2010

January 29: Departure. Quite strangely because of the snowy conditions on many European airports, almost all the participants are here at University of Pune and ready by the end of the morning. After lunch at the excellent canteen of the SET Guest House. We leave in the early afternoon for a long trip to Dhule, Northeast of Pune, that we will reach late in the evening.

The SET Guest House at University of Pune... nice garden, nice food and excellent chai (tea)... a peaceful place, like the whole university, located in a huge campus (forest should one say) in northern Pune, a city at the opposite of quiet. Don't ask me what SET means. To me it looks like extra-terrestrial stuff akin to SETI@home... if you don't know what it is and would like to contribute to exciting science visit http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_about.php.
