“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 35 – 8th June 2009 – Monday

Still freezing and still raining.
But we made the effort and got kitted out in our waterproofs and went to see the lake. Ant lasted 20 minutes before turning back, and I went on for another hour before heading back, right before the sun finally appeared… typical.
Café shut and the fridge is looking bare, so it was a beans and rice night again! No alcohol left and still sleeping in hats and scarves. Not happy.
