SO today I walked up into the forest! It was fucking epic. I am so goddam tired. In height alone I climbed over a kilometre and then down again. in the dark. Also we got great data, which bodes really fucking well. goddam it was good. proper rainforest. fucking scary coming down in the dark though. also I trod on a giant snail, which was most upsetting as it looked like my pet snails (also giant african land snails). I say fireflies. They are every bit as magical as you can imagine and then some. I was sitting on the side of a very steep slope, the mountains rolling down below me, listening for owls and they were just flitting through the trees, eerie little lights looking very much like they didn't really belong outside of mythology. I am completely nackered but elated. and I shall do it all again tomoz.
