Just around the riverbend

Sooo, what has everyone been up toooo?

oh right, this is my journal.

             I should talk about La Ruta Maya, my latest crazy activity.
The Ruta Maya is a 175 mile canoe race across the width of Belize. It took four hours (in our case, thirty something hours), and I paddled with my two friends, Emily and Pat from the Jesuit Volunteers International.

The second day, we paddled for ten and a half hours. Usually, I find that the only thing worth doing for ten hours at a time is being unconscious, however; at the end of this grueling awful ordeal, we still looked like this:
or maybe this was contrived due to the fact that we were being photographed.
It's up to you.

 That's me with my paddle, or "boat-moving stick", sitting in the rear, or "back" of the boat. (It's okay if you don't understand these "nautical" terms. I'm flanking them with useful context clues.)

epinoid has "Just around the riverbend," on his MP3 player. (He's big on soundtracks from musicals.) I forget which musical he said it's from...
