Field Journal - Day Ten


Somewhat alarmingly, a bevy of policemen in full uniform (with full guns) just arrived to our teeny village.

Allegedly here to see the Chef Du Grouppement (our host) -- their arrival gave us quite a start!

We’re told they’re on the hunt for elephant killers - maybe the same ones we saw on the road last week!

If they arrest someone, I’m keen for photos, though I’m not particularly hopeful.

It did indeed make us feel less wary after one of the officers Jun-Bi’d to Adam! It was one of his karate students from Aketi!

(The officers had walked together the 125km distance between Difongo & Aketi)
