Awesome Earth People
Big Cities and Little 'uns
One day in Botswana, we took a rather incredible helicopter ride! It came to pick us up at our camp that was literally in the middle of nowhere. And here's the kicker — our pilot was from Wanaka, New Zealand! That's only about 45 minutes away from my home… what a strange world!
We took the doors off and it was most pleasant outside. It was so nice and warm that I took off my shoes and let them dangle out into the breeze. Actually, it wasn't a breeze as much as it was a gale-force wind!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
Here's the awesome Rene Smith, who you can see right there, riding the sweet rim of the canyon. Renesmith don't care. He's just right there on the edge even though I told him not to get too close. Now, I don't know if he actually got the shot or not, but I can guarantee you he spent approximately 10 hours in Photoshop in some kind of an altered-mind-state, which I think is all kinds of awesome. Stay awesome Rene; oh, and pass the G&T!
This is one of my favorite areas in Fes, Morocco. The whole area is known for their various vats for tanning and curing leather. There are several tanneries around the town, some big, some small. This is one of the medium-sized ones that I got into because of a family connection. It was actually a tremendous amount of fun just roaming through this area. I walked all around down inside, stepped over vats, almost fell in a few times, etc.
