i woke today sick as a dog(as predicted) and had to skip my morning activities, Im pretty bummed but its nice being able to sleep in, my only disturbance is the little woman who lives in the camp that keeps popping her head in and insisting on me having tea. After resting until noon i feel well enough to do something and shortly after lunch i am informed that my evening activity will be tank monitoring via the tree hut! Im so excited!!! I rush to my room and pack my bag and we head out. Its so beautiful getting a birds eye  view of the tank. We hadnt been up here for more than five minutes before the elephants started crossing. Also at the tank is a flock of painted storks, some tortoises, cormorants, and a really fucking big crocodile. The tree hut itself is built really well and seems very sturdy except a place in the floor where some genius fisherman took their bounty from the day and decided to start a fire an dcook the fish on the wood floor....hmmmm...not too smart. The ladder up is also a bit scary  and has gotten so dry and pourous and bleached from the sun that not even the hungriest of termites seems to pay attention to it. On the branches of the tree, large red ants have fashioned a nest by gluing leaves together,  its preety amazing to watch them at their work and i did until sunset(see pics). That night we laid there til about midnight listening to buttah katahs(ghost stories) and the others finally passed out. I cant sleep at all, i enjoyed listening to all the animals and stared at the sky  til even the moon disappeared and the sun rose its head enough to peak over the mountains, its so beautiful here
