Last night we could hear the rain from inside our bedrooms, but we still got up with the same enthusiasm, and it was a fabulous day. We had the best of breakfasts trying the different ways of cooking eggs from the different countries!
At 8:15am we were ready to leave, heading towards the field work. We walked a hard way up hill towards Pantera 8 (the plot in which we had to work today) but it was worth it! On the way we had the chance to see some beautiful Toucans, and even though the monkeys were too shy to let us see them we could hear them “chatting” in the forest.
We got to work as soon as we arrived at the plot. We weighed the bee hives all together and then we divided in two groups for tree measuring and leaf litter collection. Once we had finished we had our lunch in the forest--we all were starving! And even though it rained a little during the morning, we didn't have to worry about that because the forest was acting like a big umbrella for us!
After all our work, we still had time for a little hike with the rangers who revealed to us the small secrets of the forest--there is nothing in the field that can escape their eyes and ears! Trying to not slip in the mud, we carefully started our way down the steep hill. We arrived at the Climate Centre, after 1.5 hours, for our daily rest before the learning session.
