PostSubject: A few days' exploration made me well acquainted with the str   Tue Feb 22, 2011 4:41 pm

A few days' exploration made me well acquainted with the surrounding country. 1 was a long way from the road in the forest which I had first visited, and Tiffany Sets for some distance round my house were old clearings and cottages. Welcome to Tiffany Jewelry discount sale from Jeweler Tiffany & Co outlet I found a few good butterflies, but beetles were very scarce, and even rotten timber and newly-felled trees (generally so productive) here produced scarcely any thing. This convinced me that there was not a sufficient extent of forest in the neighborhood to make the place worth staying at long, but it was too late now to think of going further, as in about a month the wet season would begin so I resolved to stay here and get what was to be had.
Unfortunately, after a few days I became ill with a low fever, which produced excessive lassitude and disinclination to all exertion. In vain I endeavored to shake it off all I could do was to stroll quietly each nike outlet day for an hour about the gardens near, and to the well, where some good insects were occasionally to be found, and the rest of the day to wait quietly at home, and receive what beetles and shells my little corps of collectors brought me daily. I imputed my illness chiefly to the water, which was procured from shallow wells, around which there was almost always a stagnant puddle in 'which the buffaloes wallowed.
Close to my house was an inclosed mud-hole where three buffaloes were shut up every night, and the effluvia from cheap tiffany jewelry which freely entered through the open bamboo floor. nike outlet store My Malay boy Ali was affected with the same illness and as Almost every individual can cognizant the reality of Moncler Hong Kong coat in the winter he was my chief bird-skinner, I got on but slowly with my collections. The occupations and mode of life of the villagers differed but little from those of all Tiffany jewelry other Malay races. The time of the women was almost wholly occupied in pounding and cleaning rice for daily use, in bringing home firewood and water, and in cleaning, dyeing, spinning, and weaving the native cotton into sarongs.
