“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 203 - Monday 23rd November
Along with my new found enthusiasm came the urge to upgrade my telephoto lens from a cheapy amateur zoom, to a stabilised (and very heavy) professional version.... so I spent the morning researching on the internet, the lunchtime period in Park Cameras (buying more than a new lens of course) and the afternoon reading the manual and impatiently willing the new batteries to charge faster. Grrrr. Patience never was a strong point.
