Boat trip update

Sally Coxe from the Bonobo Conservation Initiative arrived today in Mbandaka from Kinshasa. It is her organisation that had started working to protect bonobos in the Kokolopori area several years ago and was now helping me go there and conduct my pilot study on the apes.

Unfortunately there is still some cargo that we are waiting to arrive on a plane or collect it from the airport or something...

So the long boat journey to the bonobos is postponed until Monday morning.
