“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 277 – 5th February, Friday. Eden, still!

Still trapped inside the van choking on the stench of our combined methane output, we may not come out of this storm alive! Torrential rain hammered the van all night and a short break in the downpour early in the day allowed us to leap the small river that was formed on our route to the loos, clean our teeth, pay for another night and jump back into the van before it came sheeting down again.
Thanks heavens for YouTube and Stephanie Meyers! (even if none of the pages are actually stuck in the book anymore!!)
