Yesterday began with a positive flurry of activity. Machines were assemble and expedition equipment was mover hither and tither until it was decided that light refreshments was called for.
The local light refreshments proved to be delicious and we soon discovered that if consumed in sufficient quantities it is very good at alleviating the savage thirst brought on by the tropical climate. It would also seem to aid in the enjoyment of another local custom, the siesta. Looks like organising things could take a little longer than expected.
