I returned to Australia from my most recent field trip to Mongolia in September 2019. Due to the unfolding impact of the Coronavirus, here we continue to experience varying degrees of ‘lock down’ including not being permitted to travel overseas. So there will be no fieldwork for me in Mongolia this year. In its place I have returned my attention to becoming a better bass player (pictured here with my Kala U-Bass). I play bass for the Melbourne Ukelele Community. We Zoom twice a week, every week. Photo: C Pleteshner (selfie). 16 September 2020.
