Field Journal - Day Fifteen

Mongombo Diamond Mine

I remember mocking the movie Twister for using growling animal noises as the sound of the storm at its height, but I’ve gotta say -- when you’re surrounded by forest and that heavy sound approaches as fat droplets hit the leaves -- it could be mistaken for a monster!

Especially when viewed in conjunction with the response - panicked scurrying, putting everything and everyone indoors... our clothes were finally dry, so we brought them in!

I just hope this rain doesn’t make the trip back tomorrow worse!
