Tanzania Trip -- Saturday, July 21, 2012

July 21
Reviewing the bird book with the locals

Day 15. Saturday, July 21. Mbulu, TZ.

Day 8 in Tanzania.

Most days dawn calm and overcast, and cool here in the mountains, but today the sunrise was clear with a light breeze - I wonder what the change will bring. As it turns out, only a nice day with a few clouds to the west.

Cathy and Lydia conducted research in the same two areas as yesterday, but speaking with different men. I tagged along and enjoyed the company of locals and that of a few birds. I got to the internet cafe in the afternoon, but it was closed, so we found a guy using a cell phone modem for internet access. I dashed off a note to Liz saying that we are still having fun.
