The article written by Alan Feuer, invited along as the expedition's chronicler, is well worth the read, and the pictures, by Steve Duncan, are a must. You should also visit Duncan's homepage, for images from this, and other urban expeditions. For Norwegian readers, this link will take you to NRK's article about the delve.
