The first half of directed research data collection is over! We spent five days bush whacking our way through a community forest with Iraqw guides to measure vegetation and learn the names of trees and their traditional uses. The altitude changes on the transects were ridiculous. Check out some pictures below. Now on to the second source of data collection – personal interviews! More on that later.

Driver of the year award.
Driving could be dangerous… don’t worry, it wasn’t me.
The most beautiful crop ever created.
Descending into the bush.
So Mike and Ninah… how did you get up here?
What we walked through every day. Up, down, up, down.
Our view at the end of every day.
Bunger Village community forest!
This is how thick the foliage was…
