“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

Day 120 - 1st September, Tuesday. Sivota, Greece.
Lots of wasps, lots of hornets, 40 degree humid heat and no wine left!!!!! Argh. Must remain calm. I think my body has turned into some kind of reverse filter; I pour water in and sweat pours out, it’s a continuous cycle of salty dampness. Aren’t we as humans supposed to adapt to things over a period of time?
