Waking up early

23.06.2014 | I woke up at about 4.30h this morning – the time when I usually stood up during my volunteering time in the Mkhuze Game Reserve. Even though I am in a different place now and don’t have to stand up that early my body seems to have adapted to the daily rhythms we were following to monitor the animals. We usually left camp at 5.30h in the dark and started animal tracking via radio telemetry from a vista point. Then we went on to get a real sighting of selected animals. It was so beautiful to see and feel the sun rising and to listen to the morning voices of the bush. My B&B room cannot offer this to me today. But I can hear the waves of the Indian Ocean from afar and I will follow this call today.
