Thursday November 26th

Yesterday we didn’t do any work as a cyclone had started coming over and it rained steadily for most of the day.  The cyclone hit the coast in the evening and it rained heavily all night with gusts of wind.  This morning we woke up to flooded paths and trees fallen over.  We spent a lot of time clearing up all the debris from the paths and cutting up a very large tree which had fallen across the entrance path and blocked it.  We did all the work using hand tools but Rajan is going to try and get a wood cutting machine.  We managed to unblock the path but to clear the path we’ve got to remove the tree completely which means cutting it into smaller pieces.  If we do it by hand this will take a long time.
