"Among the Amazonian tribes I visited,"
I've seen your comments more than once regarding items you've observed in your travels. I'm just curious.....alright, I'm being nosy :^) as to whether this travel was for business or pleasure.....if you don't mind my asking. If you'd rather not say I understand. You've written about visiting a few different tribes. I found that very interesting and wondered if it was just a sightseeing thing or if you got to really mingle and learn about the group you were with. You may have posted something regarding this previously but if you did, I missed it.
Me, if I can't drive ( meaning the US, Canada or Mexico) I won't see it as "I don't Fly and I don't Float". I've been in a majority of the states in the US and driven a ways into Mexico and Canada but just can't make myself get on a plane or ship. I have been up with my Daddy in his plane a couple of times and went up with my sister during a lesson once and those few times were more than enough. My Daddy tried to get me to take lessons (he was even going to pay for them) but I said thanks but no thanks. Not much that I am scared of, but flying and floating are two things that have me stymied. For anything out of driving possibilities, I have to live thru others adventures or read about it. Thank goodness there is always something new and exciting to see here in the US and I still have almost all of Canada to explore when I retire.....have driven quite a distance into Mexico in the past but don't think I will do that again as long as things remain the way they are right now.
