A quick break from water science: Arpas Eternas (en español).

Un pequeño descanso de la ciencia del agua: Arpas Eternas

I got this book as a birthday present from my cousin, after having left my copy in my beloved Kaigan Lab. The book basically tells the story of Jesus that is not written in the Bible. What I like about it is that it does not claim to contain the "real story" (no one could); it just provides an interesting perspective of what was, or what it could have been, the life back then. It was recommended to me by Anita, my support during my journey, and I recommend it back to you, my fellow postgraduate degree pursuers (especially those living abroad), because it helped me a lot during the days of self-discovery kindly provided by my doctoral studies. The book is written in Spanish; however I think you may be able to translate it using google services, perhaps after downloading it in google docs format.

You may ask yourself why is this post related to the contents of this blog? Answer: because a PhD course comprises more than a load of technical knowledge.


PD. Aún no estás interesado en leerlo?, probablemente las charlas de Wolfang Kellert acerca de este libro (en español) cambien tu perspectiva.

Geo-environmental data for Bolivia

Datos geo-ambientales para Bolivia

Estás estudiando fuera del país?, or are you interested in establishing some project in Bolivia and you can not find any geo-environmental data? I had the same issue, and even though I could not find the amount of data available for countries such as the USA, I found some interesting links with useful information for environmental applications (please let us know if you find more info). The links are shown below the figure.
