Yesterday afternoon was spent sleeping and taking pictures. We are all recuperating after our vigorous research habits over the past week. By the end of the afternoon, the virus seemed to have petered out, as there were no new cases and those already stricken with Rotavirus had steadily recuperated. Towards the evening, many of us crept out to a big steel watchtower (used for keeping vigil against forest fires) to see some baby barn owls and a plethora of other birds out in the breezy open. Mr. Leventhal introduced us to the baby owls, 3 little hissing dinosaur-esque carnivores that happened to be very photogenic. We are all chilling out here.
Last night, we set out again to scout for some green sea turtles, to no avail. However, it was a beautiful full moon and a great time out on the beach. We came back around two thirty in the morning, and we are maintaining our restive state until we go swimming later. Ta ta, and Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
