I am in Mumbai for next couple of days to run foldscope workshops. I will write a longer post about the agenda and the plan; but want to share a wonderful Mumbai experience with everyone.
It’s all recorded in few minute Facebook Live videos (I am testing that platform to document Foldscoping in the field)..
I started with tide pools at Lands End, Bandra. The sky was clear and the tides were extremely low.
I was interrupted here by a local fisherman who thought it was too dangerous to be standing on the rocks. We had a nice chat where he told me he gets cut by the local mussels everywhere – and I continued Foldscoping.
And suddenly – I noticed the clouds started turning dark; and out of nowhere – it started pouring rains.
I had to run; although I did image a nice anemone larvae (so it looks – see second video) and some beautiful diatoms.
Ps: please comment if you like watching these live videos. I am trying to see if we can use these Facebook tools for science – and again, I am an amateur at making live videos 🙂
Ps2: this is what the tan actually looked like in 5 min. I was drenched.
