Did you know that the building of the Bergen railway can be seen in the mud at the bottom of a lake? After three days at Upsete this week, the participants in Kerim Nisancioglu¹s project Turspor know a lot more about
lake sediments, drifting pollen and valley winds. We spent two days teaching each other, and then guided high school students on the third.
