I am exhausted from the previous day of exploring, and the sun is not as welcome this morning. I may have to use the shade devices after all.
I met with the council today. The one who invited me to Planet 29. They are mostly other researchers whose work is also ongoing and could not have been more welcoming. Their collective experience on Planet 29 will be a valuable resource for my own projects; the details of which are still forming.
After the formal introductions were over we went to a private event featuring some local musicians. They played and combined all manner of instruments including a few things I have never seen before and didn’t consider as instruments. The intimate private setting was a wonderful way to be introduced to some of the sounds of Planet 29.
The parties are over and my living quarters are quiet again. Socializing can be more exhausting than laboring over my research.
The night air has cooled substantially and I attempted to read outside. Having no other sources of light around, I found myself barraged with insect life. Some of the easily disoriented creatures were biters and I was forced back through the airlock.
