Relaxing in the jungle
So we're in the jungle without a lot of the stuff we had to amuse ourselves with here in the US. What did we do for fun? Sometimes we had a lot of boxes and things around we needed to get rid of, and we did this by burning them. We usually saved stuff so we could have a bonfire. Here is one such bonfire for a field assistant's birthday. The darkness seems even more complete, somehow, with a fire lighting it up. It is very dark there. No light around for hundreds of miles, and you can see the stars so well, like you would not believe.
