newspaper taxis appear on the shore waiting to take you away, climb in the back with your head in the clouds and you're gone
yesterday i returned from a six day trek to roraima with sore knees, aching muscles, puri puri bites, sunburnt skin, 3 dead camera batteries, 7GB of photos and amazing memories. but i'll save talk of all that for when i have some photographic accompaniments. in the mean time here's a shot that i took in canaima national park - famous for containing the tallest waterfall in the world: angel falls. i extravagantly splashed out money i didn't really have on a plane ride around the big waterfall - hoping for stunning views and stunning pictures. disappointingly the weather wasn't playing ball and most of the cascade was obscured by clouds. to be honest i was pretty bummed out at what felt like a short, expensive and fairly worthless exercise. looking back at my shots revealed that while my disappointment was justified with regards to angel falls, i faired better with the surrounding area. indeed the clouds that ruined one vista, enhanced others such as this. there's probably some kind of message about silver lining hidden in all that.
