Melanie Said
I love it! Nothing compares to waking up in a tent, in the middle of nowhere, three days from the nearest town, surrounded by nature. I trudge through rice paddies and beaches. I get really muddy, and I'm always wet.

Back in the Landrover I need to come up with ways to keep my specimens alive. Are they getting sloshed around too much? I don't want them to die because I want to be able to observe their behavior back in the lab. I enjoy all the challenges, solving all the problems. It makes me feel intrepid!
