Food and Drink
Again, I don't expect luxury food on a camping-based conservation trip; food was basic yet tasty. By the time I had finished I had rice and egg coming out of my ears, although you also get different vegetable curries, some which are absolutely delicious. Meat eaters also get fish and chicken at times (I am vegetarian). Fruit also pops up Ė pineapple, apple, passionfruit, rambutan, banana and more; yummy!
Breakfast is normally omelette, fruit pancake, egg and bread or at times noodles. Donít expect milk and cereal. I really missed cheese at lunch and dinner times!

Drinks tended to be bottled/ cleaned water and during evenings, tea, more water or hot chocolate. You could buy some other drinks from the nearby shops with your own money, unless you were out doing fieldwork. At special times (such as when I successfully completed the practice trek, came out of the rainforest or during the goodbye bbq) I was treated to fruit juice or a fizzy drink.
Oh yes and expect spice. I canít take much spice and I was ok, but some dishes were a lot spicier than others!
