Day three of training

Today we learned how to graph trees, we had some practice graphing mangos.  Then we got to go out again and do some beekeeping.  This time our counterparts where there from the village.  My counterpart is named Yaya and was very excited to get the opportunity to try beekeeping as he had never done it before today.

 The bees where a little bit more aggressive and active this evening when we opened the hives.  I felt much more comfortable this evening than yesterday.  We cut six old combs out of two different hives and harvested about four complete combs of honey. \

I came home made a gut bomb skillet and took a shower and am off to bed for tomorrow for another day of training.
