Just another day in the field. I looked like this after emerging from an exploration of an 'artisanal' or hand-dug mine near Barberton. The blood was from a bang on a rock in the tunnel. It bled heavily, and I managed to miss my shirt for most of it until I could wind my sweatshirt around my head to stop the bleeding and to protect my head for the rest of the crawl into the depths of the mountain.
