Things are going well in the field so far. I collected my first round of fecal samples today. It also rained like you would think it rains in the rainforest. The monkeys started howling at the same time. That combined with the thunder and the flooding trail made for quite a scene.

I had a few visa issues coming in since they marked my status incorrectly, but those are hopefully fixed now after hours of waiting in the immigration office. Now my biggest concerns are how to get to internet often enough to keep up with business and where to find the monkeys every morning.

Pictures to follow (depending on internet speed): 1) Villahermosa does flood. Drawing and photo of drawing by Meli (8 years old) of me flying over the pyramids in Palenque. 200 years of Mexican independence Palenque style. Monkeys and monkeys in binoculars.







Leaving for the field on September 12, 2010.
