Getting to the field

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Last evening I arrived in Sao Paolo, and already this morning Marcelo and I leave for  Campo Grande, an airport 200 km away from the farm where we will do the fieldwork for the NomadicGrazing performance.

Paolo Hartman and Marcelo Godoy of Mobilefest Paolo Hartman (l.) drove us to the airport, Marcelo Godoy (r.) accompanied me to collaborate in the fieldwork.
