A short Journal Entry (Day 7, sorry I missed Day 6)
I thought I was going to have extra time to write on my Journal and to answer comments today, since we went out to the camp very early and came back to home-base also earlier than usual. Somehow the day flew by, so I missed a day of journaling. The editing took me way too long, and I had a conference call that took some time. At 1am, I had to sleep a little. The night before was one with almost no sleep at all. It is 5am now, and light is starting to shine outside the hut. A new day is starting. I was so tired tonight that I did not feel any of the bugs. We did not turn on the light at all, so that they would not be attracted and could not plan their nightly attack. There are still lots of them in here, but not too bad. I hope some of the faces you are seeing are staying with you. It is not all horrible out here. The people are beautiful, and that is a big part of what we want to share with you. The world needs to see the beauty that will be lost if we do nothing. They are not numbers. They have faces. They have names.
