Day 14: arrival at Illeret

June 23, 2022

We leave Base Camp early and travel to the Illeret. All research projects begin either that same day or early next day.

We arrived after some delays , set up tents in 90+ temps in direct sun, hydrated a bit, and ate lunch very late. We then had one of our planning meetings about teacher stuff, i.e. lesson plans and resting in the shade until supper.

First flat tire
Fossilized hippo tooth (part of the jaw here too) found while waiting for tire change.
Second flat tire of the day.
Chelle standing next to large termite mound while tire getting patched up…no spare used here, just a quick fix.
