Due to the heat we spent all day sitting in the shade, reading, swatting flies and trying to keep cool (Ant with his feet in the washing up bowl!).
‘Horacio’ (our onboard Cactus who is being re-housed in Cyprus) has had a facelift, Ant removed his protective scaffolding made from wooden kebab skewers as it was looking a bit ropey and replaced it with a newly carved fork support which even has his initial carved into it. Despite the countless times I’ve punctured myself on him, sworn at him and cursed the decision to bring him with us… he does look quite smart now.
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins
