helmet heads. whitewater slalom.

(viewed 1216 times)
It's a lot like skiing. shorter kayaks let you do tricks. more manoueverable. the river is a slalom course--rocks, water and gates to make. when I got there it was the end of the day, and most people were just fooling around at the bottom where it is interesting, but nothing serious.

I think this is a level 2 whitewater. my son, the bear, is off for the summer doing things like this in a canoe. he also spends lots of time in still water, fighting mosquitoes.

whitewater means wear a helmet

whitewater is much prized by canoeists and kayakers. it is extremely dangerous, full of undertows and rocks. this stretch of the river is well-known internationally as an extreme kayak experience.

for me, it is clean, fast water, the sound is incredible.

sure hope we can find all the screws.

rob is leaving for the summer tomorrow morning, to go up north. way up north. it's sunday. everything is closed. he needs to get the little plug out of his recharger port, because somehow he tore it off. only way to do it is to go from the inside. and to get there, you have to take it all apart. laptop guts all over. but we are confident. that is if we can put it back together.

it was a boring day, anyway.

me gusta guatemala, me gusta Mano Chao

Mano Chao and Radio Bemba Sound System are playing tonight in Toronto.

Mano Chao has been a great supporter of the Mayan people. I have been lucky enough to work with them, and travel there. This little girl is the daughter of one of the women in a weaving cooperative in Solola, Guatemala.

More people were disappeared in Guatemala than any other Latin country. Most of them were Mayan.
