    A spoon I carved, I think it was out of one of the thicker jungle vines not too soft of a wood, but easy to work

    It is winter here yes, During the day a max of about 18 degrees Celsius on a sunny day at midday... but mostly around 12 degrees at day time
    at night it would drop to 3 degrees and about 3 am in morning around -1 or -2 degrees Celsius. So pretty cold for African terms
