The world through a 3-inch LCD screen

Posted by Dominic on Saturday, February 11th, 2006

Ok, one last note before we rest for a while. It’s been a surprisingly smooth 6 weeks on the road. Doors have opened constantly. Brazil is hot and sunny. The people very laid back and friendly. I’m grateful to spend some time out in the farmlands in this area. It’s sugar cane as far as the eye can see. Oceans of green against the bluest sky. When thunderstorms roll across the fields and the sky darkens it brings that kind of quiet that really satisfies. You can just sit and watch the heat disappear replaced with the smell of cool damp soil. My head finally quiets down and I can almost slow down enough to realize where I am instead of always looking for my backpack and camera.

I am learning a new way of travel. It’s the world through a 3-inch LCD screen on my camera. Hours pass and the world exists as a movement of little pixels. It’s not so bad, it makes you tell a story. In the coming summer months I will wander in and out of the hundreds of hours of tapes and make sense of this wild trip.
