Through dense tiger country to the starting place

Thursday, 26 October 2017

Are back out of "Africa", the lungs still full of smoke from fire on the floor of the hut last night, seems that chimneys are not common. We hiked through dense tiger country, literally, to the starting place. Now flying!
16.11 am: Got fresh bread and kohlrabi. Here there are no roads, everything is transported of foot trails. The flight today was not very productive, but exciting and beautiful. Now we have made a big fire, and will rest.

 Sind wieder raus aus "Afrika", die Lungen noch voller Rauch aus der Lehmhütte. Durch Tigergelände zum Startplatz. Jetzt gehts zum Fliegen!
16.11 Uhr:  Haben frisches Brot und Kohlrabi bekommen. Hier gibt es keine Strassen, nur Selbstversorgerer. Der Flug heute war wenig ergiebig, aber spannend. Jetzt haben wir ein großes Feuer gemacht, Schluß für heute!
