Hello everyone. How goes the world? Mine is fine. I’ve been deep in the Amazon these last few weeks, spending some time with friends, and fish, and serpents, not to mention Genghis Khan (don’t ask, well that is unless you really want to know). But it’s been wonderful. There is just so much to learn here! I’ve had my fly line cut by piranhas, seen enormous grubs cooked over coals, watched a rooster feel sympathy for a turtle, been rained on until it seemed the sky and the river were one, traveled miles and miles and miles in a tiny wooden canoe, swam, hiked, slept, and even witnessed the unspeakable accuracy and power of Maestro Don Alberto Torres Davila’s deadly staff, as wielded against the head of a viper two meters long and sliding sideways through the grass. But alas, now I am headed south again. I’ll be on Lago Titicaca in two days. Look for another update sometime soon, and in the meantime, here’s the photos that I’ve taken along the way. In the meantime though all of you please write me back; I look forward to hearing from you soon.
