CD Diary: Sukau ¦ Modest Soccer Pitch
05 June 2012, Tuesday. After an amazing start to the day, it was back to work.
Lunch at the B+B was a communal affair, sitting cross-legged on the floor. The home-cooked meals were ever so delicious.
After lunch, we were taken out to an oil palm estate, for some flights. This place was selected as it had an open space, i.e. soccer pitch, closest to a research field site. It was a modest soccer pitch, for which we were allowed to borrow until 4:30PM. Even though the estate's workers soccer session was to start at half-past 4PM, the crowd was drawn before that.
The quiet evening was made annoying by the relentless mosquitoes buzzing around my face. I could barely sleep.
