Anyway, Merry Christmas to you all!
P.S. I didn't shave all of my hair off (and no, I didn't do it because of nits/lice!), I had a clippers #3 all over. It's started to grow back all ready but I'll get Alex to take a picture and leave it up to you to decide if you think it suits me.
Dean: Well, we got here and have started work (six days in). Alex is currently working with about 70 birds in the lower avery, but she is hoping to spend her second week somewhere else (maybe with the monkeys). I am on my own with the small animals - looking after three Tyra (Tito, Ban Ban, and Chica - they are a bit like weasels), three night monkeys (George, Olivia, and a new one to the park with no name yet), and four Cuchi Cuchi (they are like a cross between a cat and a monkey! - only one has a name - Frank - he is really aggressive and territorial). We are enjoying it here, the park is nice as are the other volunteers, the accommodation is a bit basic (we are in rooms within the park), and the animals are great - the monkeys are so cute! It will be strange not doing Christmas but it is definitely an experience and something we will remember in years to come. The town does have some Internet cafes but the connection tends to go down durring storms - and it's currently the wet season...
