Boiling water for coffee to keep us awake at night
The boys Daro and Eka and Mr. Linder would make a fire on both ends of the tent to stop the fierce, biting sand flies, agas, from entering the open tent. We would sit on our mats mesmerized by Mr. Linder’s fire making abilities. Once water was boiling and the fires flaring, the boys would walk up and down the beach to look for turtles. They would make light signals with their head torches whenever fresh leatherback tracks were found.
