I am Zoe Barnes and I have been with the project for 3 years now. I am in charge orchids with the genus of Prosthecheas, Sophronitis, and Encyclia. I have also been to Durban south Africa to the BGCI conference with the project.
Today we have done some great shopping at the market, I can’t give to many details as most of it is presents, but some of it is small and sweet, and we even found a spoon big enough for Jacob.
What is long green and venomous? We had 2 strokes of good luck in the forest today, the first was that we found this amazing sedge viper, the second was that it didn’t bite us.
Poor Tom slipped and fell into a river just next to a waterfall on our strength hike. Obviously we were really sympathetic and Amy even gave him some dry purple socks.
As many of you know, as part of our ‘down time’ we went on a 6 hour strength hike, of 10km through the mountains. It was quite hard, however the 4 waterfalls, monkeys and many orchids were a good reward.
The second day with Byimana school students was brilliant fun when we took them to nyungwe forest and they were able to identify orchids in the wild.
