The challenge is adventure.
“This week, share a photo that says “adventure.” It could be an image of someone setting off on an epic journey, a photo you took on an adventure of your own, or something more metaphoric that represents a personal or psychological adventure. We’re excited to see where you’ll take us!”
1993 August: Guatemala. After three months in Xela I hit the road. Several weeks later I found myself in Tikal, a truly extraordinary place. Tropical Rain Forest. Height of civilization around 500 of the common era. Average temp 93. Average humidity around 80%.
I took this self portrait right before I put on the few clothes I was carrying and stepped into the shower so I could wash them and myself before all the water ran out for the night. 10 minutes later, back in the room. (I will spare you that photograph.)
Note the blanket on the bed…
