A meeting with HRH Prince Charles

I wrote a letter, sitting on the bank of a stream, my back nestled in the buttress roots of a spiralling Bolivian rainforest tree. Enormous plate-sized, electric-blue, morpho-butterflies wafted over my hand. Beads of sweat formed rivulets down my back and tiny fish darted past my toes. The letter was to HRH Prince Charles about our expedition and how meeting him, a staunch advocate and conservationist of our natural world, would give us a tremendous boost during the many hot, sweaty, insect-infested miles that lay ahead.

We have been sailing in the most amazing place in the planet. That is simply no exaggeration. This blog falls into three parts, and is a little unusual! First, a gallery with some music, some of the images are beautiful and we are genuinly pleased with, there are others with us in…! Second is a little playful poem of our time here, and the thrid a wordy acount which is more descriptive of the shenanigans and landscape but, alas, will never do this magestic land justice.
