The rains are coming. Today was the most rain that I've seen since I got washed out in the Sahara. I think I've only been in rain five times since I left England, but I think this torrential thunderstorm is a taster of what's to come through central Africa. Rivers of water started to flow under my tent and started to form tiny springs through my groundsheet from the holes that ants have made as they've eaten their way through to get at my food when I've been sleeping wild in the bush. You can literally hear hundreds of tiny mouths chewing sometimes. Things got very wet. The weather has never really been a challenge so far but I'm feeling that the rains to come will be a test when you're living outside. Still, its nice to not have blood encrusted in my nose from breathing in dust all the time!
