We have returned from the first batch of field work in northwest Bosnia and are pleased to report we are still alive. We very nearly met our death on the way there, however, as we wound our way through curving and crumbling mountain roads at speeds exceeding 160 KPH. FAB has always thought guard rails were a little silly along the sides of interstate highways since they clearly aren't going to do much for you if you barrel into them at 70 MPH. However, even if guardrails may not save your life, we will now admit that, if nothing else, they do serve a handy psychological purpose which was not lost on us as we careened around curves at 100 KPH.
