      Today is what I call a payoff day. Calakmul, capital of the Mayans. My chef/guide, Don Antonio, and I arrive at dawn after an hour on dirt roads. I step out the car into a procession of fire ants! Luckily they are distracted by a pitched battle against a battalion of soldier ants bisecting their column. The fire ants are winning. Both sides neglect my offerings of cookies to negotiate peace. Don Antonio draws me a map and I head into the dig ...

Saw a small group of howlers along with a troop of spider monkeys. Lots of brilliant ...

      ... a rare Coral snake. Back up for a lecture followed by lunch. Heat in the afternoon is unbearable. Headed out for mammal tracking at 3.30. 4km hike looking for tracks. Not the most interesting of activities but I ended up chatting to Tim, the camp manager, about cricket the whole way. Went to bed early as I was extremely ...

      ... with data collecting in order to provide hard evidence on the areas flora and fauna. Chatted to John some more - very interesting character who has been all over the world. Dinner consisted of rice, egg and beans followed by a deliciously juicy mango. Two groups are doing evening treks tonight while we are just relaxing. Extremely humid and an uncomfortable night's sleep ...
