[Alessandro] Look at that acacia!
It's official: Acacia Mellifera is the nastiest tree in the world. Not only it has humongous thorns to scare off big herbivores; it also has tiny hook-shaped thorns all over its small outreaching branches. It's impossible not to get your clothes or hat caught in and your skin scratched when passing by.
Anyways, yesterday was a good day for the BOMA team. Lab processing in the morning and work at the new black cotton boma in the afternoon, along with the Virtual Mpala folks, who took pics, videos, and interviewed us!
Team BOMA FTW! (From left: Henry, Emma, Adam, Clara, Me, Jacob, Josephet, Islam)
