We were there the end of August-- beginning of September so it was dry season but, even so, we had a helluva trip in our bus along the Transpantaneira after a rainstorm. That mud is beyond slippery and we kept slithering sideways. For a while the owner of the lodge was following and helping us but he finally had to go back. I don't know if you ever traveled that way but there is bridge after bridge after bridge and you have to speed up getting to them to go up onto the wood. At one point there was a big drop-off and Joe VanOs had us get out of the bus. He said to bring our passports. The poor bus driver couldn't get off and, thank heavens, he made it and we got back on. A two hour trip took us nine hours. Most of the time there was no cell signal but we finally were able to reach a lodge along the way and they prepared us some lunch. I know this is mild compared to some of your trips. I went with photosafaris.com and we were well taken care of but it is a company of photographers so they want you to get the shots. I never went on the really difficult trips. I'm old and have never been much of an athlete. PhysEd was my least favorite class in school though I did enjoy hiking in my early teen years. The animals are what drew me to the wild places. I have many fabulous memories and acquired a lifetime friend. She and I were traveling alone to the Masai Mara and they put us together as roommates. We laughed always during any troubles.

Great story. My daughter hated PhysEd, also. That said, she skated, rode her bicycle, and snow and water skied. I don’t think she liked organized sports in gym and especially hated the lack of privacy in the showers.

Photo Safaris sounds like the way to go.

I'm with your daughter. I loathed PhysEd  -- called "gym" back then --  in high school for similar reasons. It didn't help that our gym teacher was something of a sadist who disliked me. The feeling was mutual. However, I loved playing "disorganized sports" with my friends after school and was an active, outdoorsy kid. Even today I don't follow professional sports. Fortunately, PE is taught very differently in most schools nowadays. Things have improved...

That's Brazil for you, the country of adventures.

Oh yes the Transpantaneira. Last time we went, we went through a bridge with our car rental. It just collapsed underneath us. Luckily, the last car of the day came and helped us fishing out the rotten planks fallen into the swamp. We had planned to go all the way over the 88 bridges but we turned round. Until midnight, we were rebuilding bridges in front of us in the dark. I had a head torch. I could see hundred of caiman eyes below. What a relief it was when we reached a lodge.

Oh boy.. One guy in our group had been there ten years before and he said we were getting a much better road. The bridges seemed sturdy, at least, but you do feel quite cut off from the rest of the world. If we had to give up in our progress it would have been a long time waiting for help. I hope your upcoming trip to "nowhere" goes smoothly.

Funny you should say that. We just spent the whole evening trying to figure out that tidal river crossing. Add 5h30 to official Darwin tide times, check the height of the tide, if 5-6 m then cross 2h on either side of high tide, is it the dry or wet season which would have an impact on water level, don't cross on outgoing tide. We are exhausted. Conclusion was: go there early and watch the tide. Thing is that once we crossed, we are not allowed to stop in indigenous land and it's a 7 to 10 hours drive. If the tide is right at mid-day, then what??

Wow, he looks so young! I saw him perform in 1994 and have one of his CDs. It was so absorbing and meditative that I was in a really peaceful trance afterwards. That's a really nice portrait.

Thanks, Sally :) He really is a brilliant musician and it was an honor to meet him. Ravi Shankar had a house in L.A. and this was shot when the Festival from India performers were relaxing in his back yard.

With the Sony app on my phone.

Before it was called Playmemories. Now it's called Imaging Edge Mobile.

Yes, of course... There's an app. I disengaged from my smartphone, because it was beeping at me all the time.

 

I'm currently aware that 99% of my pix are taken from a standard height of six metres!
