More People, More Sightings.

It has been quite a couple of weeks!  Since Alastair and I stepped off the plane there has been a stream of visitors needing attention.  We’ve had all manner of consultants and groups coming through to see the project and often these visits overlap leaving Alastair and I in a logistical nightmare.  We’ve had people coming from the UK, India and Australia but most are coming from South Africa.  We’ve had accountants, metallurgists, geologists, mining specialists, environmentalists, HR, as well as Health and Safety.  A couple of these people are staying long-term but most only stay for a short period of time.  The workload has increased exponentially, but it is the time-consuming task of arranging and accommodating visitors that has absorbed any free time…I haven’t even seen Apple once this week! :(

However, if I’m missing Apple, I certainly haven’t had the opportunity to miss the snakes.  I’m not sure if it’s the time of year or eager new people spying around that’s resulted in four or five snake sightings just in the past few days.

Thankfully, this little guy in the picture above was not poisonous.

There’s no use fighting it, I’m getting used to snakes and visitors :)
