about the climates

“I’ve been through these places with really hot climates, the tropical kind, where there’s just so many insects and of all sorts,” he talked while he turned to face everyone. “I’ve seen all kinds of spiders; some with all these colours and some just so plain. Harmless spiders and terribly poisonous ones too, some of them so tiny, and other so big and all the sizes in between. Snakes with attractive designs and so colourful patterns  that they make you hallucinate. The size that eats insects and mice and the size that eats kids and adults as well. Hanging in the trees or crawling among the bushes. All kinds of animals I’ve found; even once, I found a lion that I thought was going to devour me, but fortunately, he had other things on his mind.”

“My Momma use to say that the world was chock full of opportunities and one should always follow them, you know? So that´s how one I followed up on an opportunity to travel.

“I believe that I have journeyed and wandered over the most part of the planet. In large and very modern airplanes, and as well, in the most rudimentary, antique and quite worn out ones. Yes, I have flown in tiny, small airplanes that took off from state of the art airports with amazing concrete runways, and I have landed in patches of dirt roads that could barely qualify as streets fit for ox-drawn carts. On transatlantic ships and canoes, and I have even sailed on warships, converted to other uses before they are finally retired from the seas.

. On double Decker buses that have two floors and on single floor buses that almost have no floor at all from so much wear and tear. On motorcycles and motorcycle tuk-tuk taxis and even on row boats. On occasional bicycle-taxis, all of those operated by people whose skins show the widest range of colours and who talk in languages that are incredibly so different among themselves.”
