This area has been picked through already. The ground is mushy, but stable. It hasn't rained in a while, so there is little mud. What gooey mud there is, sticks to our shoes, but does not flow over the tops. Our socks are moist, though. I will have to throw away my shoes and socks after this because i cannot get out the stench, though i wash them many times in a tub. The air here is not bad, but back at the hotel, the smell of the shoes is overwhelming.
