Homer in the jungle

Jet-lag is still present for us. Today the telephone woke us up at 11 we then decided to go to the Central Catchment Nature Reserve a bit outside of Singapore.

The team enjoying the jungle. Last day for fun before we go into the competition environment tomorrow

Because of the tropical temperatures here we lost quite a lot of water during our 13km walk in the park. But it was impressive. There were a lot monkeys and tropical plants. The treetop walk was also quite impressive. This was a bridge throughout the jungle.

Monkeys all around. Don't feed them ... they get aggressive

Currently we are testing. Maggie is now able to stack cubes with 2.5kg (we don’t have enough cubes for testing here).

Our improvised scale built with a coat-hanger and two plastic bags to estimate the weight of the cubes

A tower that Maggie just stacked. With modified cubes that hold water bottles in order to simulate the weight of the cubes. Weight is OK now, but the water makes the tower shaky :) We are looking forward to use the official cubes tomorrow

Yesterday Malte modified the cubes to hold a bottle of water in order to increase the weight of the testing cubes.
