5:35 6:00 Shower before dinner only three minutes of water!
Eat dinner and clean up.
Sort the termites according to nest
8- bedtime Free time to read, call home, or just chat.
Of course, our schedule wasnt really as strict as this may seem. Some days we got more free time than others, but the work was fair. We would visit as many nests as we could without totally exhausting ourselves if it got just too hot or if we got too tired, Claire and Marielle probably were too, and so they would let us crash at the beach or here at VIERS.
*Termiting (tur-my-ting) v.- the act, or process of collecting, studying, and analyzing various aspects of a certain nest and its surrounding environment.
