Keeping up with the title given by wordpress, hello world! I am about to spend one year with the Baka, a group of forest foragers who live in the tropical rainforest in Gabon in Central Africa. This project is the fieldwork part of my PhD, but more importantly a ten-year old dream come true. I am very excited, and decided I would like to use a blog to document my experiences and share them with you. I have never blogged before, and am not sure how often I will be able to post once in the field, so I hope you will just enjoy the posts as they come.
