Can’t really complain about the weather in South Africa: after three weeks of field work, we have the first real rain day. Because of the drizzle, we can’t photograph Lithops populations today, so we stopped for for lunch and coffee at the Kerksaal in Bitterfontein. At the same time, we’re backing up all of our image data.

Despite the rain, we have a couple of Lithops divergens sites mapped and ready for tomorrow, which will be the last full field day or our expedition.
