Monday, 18 Oct – Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, Africa.
It’s raining bats… this morning the wind began to blow really hard. The bats, who occupy the palm trees took flight. I looked toward the sky and at first thought there were thousands of crows in the sky… but soon realized they were the bats. It was quite a sight. It reminded me of the movie “Wizard of Oz.” Remember the Flying Monkeys, well the Malabo Bats are not quite as big but close. It’s still raining as I type, but the bats have taken their upside down perches back in the trees.
