11/5/2017: We arrived late in Ranomofana, and went straight to the walking on the road in the rain to look for lizards, snakes, frogs, et al. The guide was very excited for every chameleon and there were a bunch.

11/6/2017: We crashed around the woods all day looking for the Brown Mesite but not finding it. Then we bought a late lunch for the entire entourage which cost the same as lunch for one person in San Francisco.

11/7/2017: Some more crashing around in the woods looking for the impossible to find birds of Ranomafana.
