After careful selection from many candidates i decided on who were to be
my crew for the next two months. You might get the wrong impression when you see
the picture to the right but Sabrina is not just a pretty little thing she
is actually the best candidate. Sabrina is a sailing instructor (4 meters),
bartender and Texas hold-em poker player (i love poker). If there is someone out
there that think they have better credentials than that please feel free to
email me and i will post the application in my next letter.
Where are we going?
Have you seen those guys that invented bungee jumping?, NO it is not the New
Zealanders. The real thing is from a small island chain in between Fiji and
Australia called Vanuatu. The people there have for centuries thrown themselves
off big bamboo-man-made towers with only vanes tied to their ankles. The jump is
not valid if they don't smash the head into the ground so they have to jump far
out then when the vine is on full stretch it is supposed to bounce them back and
they will hit the ground head on (literally) There has only been one
fatality (that we know about) and that was when the queen of England came to
visit and they put the show on for her in the wrong season so the vines were not
strong enough to hold them.
The next letter will be from there. In the mean time, here are some

A bad sunset.
Don't think there is such a thing as a bad sunset though.
