Still, I am glad I am a bit crazy for this was a fantastic experience paddling down this small river and one of its tributaries with different types of landscape passing by along the way, some exceedingly beautiful. Even the dead trees, wrapped in some insect web looked amazingly attractive and at the same time horrific. We even spent the night in the forest!

Now that I look at Google maps it seems that they have become a lot less detailed, which is a pity since they become pretty useless that way. It is impossible for one thing to find the waterways and post a picture showing the route.
Anyway, had I been attempting a rowing machine I would have believed myself exhausted after 15 minutes, whereas for real I managed with very little trouble to paddle for two solid days. My neck and upper arms hurt a bit, but not enough to deter me from continuing. In fact, although exhausted on Sunday evening and still a bit yesterday, it was the good kind of exhaution that comes from giving your body a thorough working over. All in all, a lovely weekend!
