The house cont.

Rubondo Island is full of wonderful creatures some very big and others small. 

I share my bedroom with the sweetest little creature and each evening she pops out to finish the food on my plate and nibble on left over fruit. At first I thought it was a bush baby, but one day I caught it eating a banana in one of my bags and after closer inspection I came to the conclusion that it is definitely a mouse. 




Yesterday we found her in a bucket in the bathroom, and I don’t think she was feeling very well so I left her to rest in my bed before heading out to the forest

About Nadejda Josephine

I am currently studying for a doctorate in Anthropology at University College London. My fieldwork takes place on Rubondo Island, Lake Victoria in Tanzania. The research looks at the nesting patterns and nest architecture in the Rubondo chimpanzees. I began the work in April 2012 and will remain on the island until at least October 2013. I write this blog so as not to forget this wonderful island and the random events which occur throughout my fieldwork.
