Day 12 in Borneo: Finding everything we came for.

“I can report the first phase has been an outstanding success and we have collected everything we came looking for. The view, when it is not raining and cloudy is out of this world! It rains every day which makes collecting tiny plants that are already difficult to find a challenge. However, it generally rains in mid afternoon, and we have daily bets as to the exact time, I am currently in debt The walk up was amazing. Life at this elevation was a unique experience for me. With less oxygen, physical activity climbing at this elevation can be challenging. I woke up each day with what can only be best described as dehydrated and mild headaches.”
