Networking in Bali

Good to see that even on her free day in Bali Amanda found time for networking. Last Friday she had the opportunity to go diving on the wreck of the USAT Liberty at Tulamben on the N-E coast of Bali.

A group from the Bangor Acidophile Research Team (BART), made up of Carmen Falagan, Ana Araujo, Eva Pakostova, Rose Barata Holanda and Sarah Smith had already booked to go and were kind enough to let her, Megan Roberto and Angie Murray (of the University of Birmingham) join them.

Amanda said " Me and Megan - who is married to Newmont's Frank Roberto, who has agreed to give a keynote at Biohydrometallurgy '16 - are seasoned divers (ahem!) and so dived together. Unfortunately Carmen, who was to join us, had a problem with her ear and could not dive. The others were all first time divers and were taken down in another two groups".

Amanda has obviously had a tough week in Indonesia, and hopefully will take it easy for a little while now she is back in the UK, bearing in mind that she has another hard week coming up shortly in Cape Town.
