At Seymour Norte island in the Galapagos Islands
Our last full day in the Galapagos ended with a swim with 4 curious young sea lions. It was all fun and games until the beachmaster showed up.
Way #256: Becoming Arapaima food
These carnivorous arapaima were 2.5 meters long and very hungry
Thankfully they don’t have any teeth so all their food has to fit down their throats, so we were relatively safe.
Way #512: This
No one in their right mind would ever get on a rickety rope swing 70 meters up, but you aren’t in your right mind. Or at least I wasn’t.
Bonus way to die: White water canoeing in a dugout canoe
Everything is going as well as can be expected until you slam into some rocks.
Almost chickened out… glad I didn’t.

Chimpanzee vocalizations in Kibale National Park, Uganda.
After making the long journey to the picturesque Bwindi National Park (tightly clutching our gorilla tracking permits), and hiking down 600 metres to the valley bottom where the Mountain Gorillas were busy eating their breakfast we got to spend 1 hour (which was definitely not enough, but is all that is allowed) with the amazing apes.
So far I have taken over 2500 pictures. But the internet here is too slow for me to upload much, and you probably want me to go through the mountain of pictures and only show the ones worth showing (who needs to see 75 almost identical pictures of the shoebill?)
So for now enjoy this teaser pic of an African Jacana flying over the Mabamba swamp just after sunrise:
