Almost "live" from Soqotra!

Rudi Debbaut just called me minutes ago from Soqotra Island.
Most energy of the team has been put in Giniba Cave as Difshelei Cave received too much water and hence sediments blocking the lowest passages even more than last time.
Post siphon approx. 2km is mapped. The main gallery end on another siphon. Just before a side gallery heading south for another 2km also ends on a siphon. This gallery can also be followed in northern direction over another 400m.
The SKP9 team probably discovered the resurgence of the cave system at the surface.
Although the real counting has to begin, it is already a major succes, congratulations men!
