The rooster that so kindly reminded me that it was time to wake up when the sun comes up. The day after I took this photo, I found him headless and bloody in the kitchen sink. He didn't taste as good as I had hoped.
Me and my city!

We walked along the road to get to Her Her, it was a HOT HOT day!
My site mate, Jon taking a water break in the shade on our way back from Her Her.
I didn't want to swim because there were a MILLION tiny fish in there, and I was afraid I'd wash all my sunscreen off. The sun is super intense here.
