Night at the Bai

Ambi. Nighttime in the Bai. Darkness may have fallen, but the Bai remains vibrant with sound. There is the pulsing hum of the insects, and the frogs carry on a lively conversation amongst themselves. There are occasional bird squawks and the sloshing of elephant tusks in water. All of this communication provides a backdrop of sound that is constant as the night progresses.
