His experience and his training direct him to responsible jobs on the ground. He had no particular choice as for the working zone in Afghanistan, but by affinity and by knowledge, the Northeast of Afghanistan caught more his attention.

It is thanks to Erik L' Homme and his brother Yannick, to the Museum that he was able to progress on the ground.

One of the brothers of Jordi, Andrès, contributed enormously to the realization of its projects, and was one of a help of the most committed. He remains today inconsolable.

He had a very easy contact with premises and an interest for their culture, due to his good ethnological experience of the Pakistani and Afghan populations of Hindu Kush, quite particularly Chitralis, Kalashs, Nouristanis, Patans de la Kurar and Nangahar including the Talibans, the opposition of Commander Massood and the Israëliens (from whom arises Prince Sadrudin Aga Khan who is Swiss).

Jordi et ses amis

Jordi had a habit and an experience of life on the ground in difficult conditions over long months in mountain far from any inhabited zone and remained indifferent to the constraints of a summary conford and could live at the rate of the local populations. He was experimented for the implementation and the realization of missions on the ground, even long, more than six months, capable of managing the logistics, the budget, the human resources, the public relations, the direction of the team, the cultural, scientific animations, the frames and the environment.

The stake in the expeditions

If the existence of these beings is verified, the fallout would be completely considerable:

- The protection of Hominids Relics.

- The knowledge: the human Paleontology, the prehistory, the biology, the neurology, the ethnology and the linguistics.

- The philosophic réfléxion: the understanding of the human being in evolution continues.

In our days the Fossil Hominids (Men Néanderthal, hairy Men) disappeared here is 30 000 - 20 000 years. If it was about collective memory, it shall mean the preservation of an oral tradition telling a co-existance very former going back to 20 000 years. A collective oral transmission without deformation.

Here in Europe, the scientific institutions (as well as convent schools) will do everything to suffocate such a discovery because they do not want to admit the existence of a 2nd humanity. Our society does not accept any more, the differences, even to the progressive, various way of thinking, understanding of the propallid, seem taboo. Safe maybe in India, that's why Jordi did not go farther towards the general public. Jordi continued this search to enrich our knowledge on these beings and either to try to convince the official scientific community. As for institutions as the Academy of Science, the middle school of France, are there more to check the scientifically correct, that to help in the understanding of the propallid.

The material of Jordi's ground: horses, to move with all the deep necessary because in mountains premises have to sell nothing. The hunting is not possible parcequ' it is necessary to remain discreet.

There are journalists who were interested and wanted to accompany Jordi and to make reports on his searches. But they were not aware of the fact that it is necessary to spend a lot of time on the ground.
