We are back in the research station at Richards Bays after having spent three nights camping at the beach in Mtumzini.
We measured the canopies of nine forests plots, fighting with thorny climbers, evil spiky vines and dense thickets of man-high Isoglossa (apparently a plant that lives its life in a seven-years cycle).
But we didn’t complain (too much) and marched through, more than compensated by the late afternoon strolls through mangroves and along a deserted very long sandy beach.
In two hours, we will be leaving for Mabibi campsite, and I am promised more tropical temperatures. It is rainy and cold outside at the moment, so let’s see.
