We are well into the dry season, and have even had a few light rains to hold the dust down. Humidity has been very low and temperatures a little chilly for equatorial Africa.
I have noticed on my walks through the forest that leaves have been dropping, making it difficult to walk quietly. A few trees have been flowering, the smell intoxicating. Butterflies have been busy collecting nectar when they aren’t basking in the warmth of the sun.
The dry season is nearing the end of the cycle, and rain will soon return to replenish the parched landscape.
