two years ago today i took a plane to rio de janeiro
to start my travels in south america. i didn't imagine i'd still be in south america when i wrote that sentence. this time last year
i said that i didn't have a specific time scale, just a desire to visit each country in this continent. so how did that work out? well since i wrote that i have visited ecuador
and guyana. oh, and i also nipped over to cuba
. in my pocket is a visa to suriname, so this time next week i should be posting from another new country. seems pretty comprehensive. unfortunately i'm predicting a gallic shaped hole in my plans as once i cross the border i will have been to every country except french guiana... and i'm not sure if i'll make it there. my issue comes down to money, i don't have so much, and french guiana requires a lot. if i wanted to be pedantic, i could miss it and still say that i've been in each country in south america. technically french guiana is a region of france... and i have been to france
before. yeah, that didn't convince me either.
this was a tricky photo to get right as i had to splice two other shots to get more water, here's one of the originals
