Back from the Jungle

Hi all,

We are back from Fireburn. We spent the night in the fieldbase that the last expedition put the roof on. The forest has changed quite a bit since then, as in 2007 there was a big hurricane and the jungle was flattened (the building was okay). The jungle is till regrowing to it’s former glory, and although the forest is still dense on the lower levels, the canopy is rather patchy.

Was a great couple of days, plenty of photos to share on our return. Makes us appreciate the convenience of living near a village.

Final full day on the project today, finishing off a few loose ends. Most the team are off shopping in Orange Walk tomorrow before the Christmas celebrations start.

Oh, we got the Christmas parcel through thanks 🙂

    So pleased you got the parcel and hope the goodies will be shared around. We all want to wish Colm and HSX a Very Happy Xmas and New Year! The updates have been brilliant and the work you all have been doing very worthwhile. Enjoy the last 10 days or so – Milford temps nothing like Belize! 🙂
