so... I'm in Borneo right.
I don't really know where to begin. I have been at Danum Valley for 11 days now and a lot has happened.

I'm working on moths, collecting and identifying, walking in the forest by day and spotlighting by night, driving to distant sites over perilous collapsing roads, dodging logging trucks, spotting orang-utans, eating rice and partying with the locals.

this is the view from my lab

here are some elephants - Bornean pigmy elephants

This lovely fellow was on my umbrella, which I was about to put above my head.
