I'm so glad I've been here before, I wasn't sure if I would feel more anxious traveling alone this time, but so far the familiarity of everything here is very comforting (even speeding taxi drivers and men on the street whispering things to me that I try to tune out... just another day in the capitol city).
I don't have much more to say at the moment, but I'm looking forward to getting down to the rainforest and meeting up with people from last summer's adventure. I'm also enjoying my time at this hipster/backpacker hostel, everyone here is very nice and helpful.
Okay, I'll write more later when I really have something to say. Best luck to all of my field study companions!
