This is a picture of a surfer on the largest wave in the world.
It goes up the Amazon river twice a year and is known as the Pororoca. For surfers it's huge draw, after all surfing for 30 minutes at a time just isn't possible on the Sea! Only problem are the whole trees and poisonous snakes that are swept up by the wave!
Anyway the point of this post is just appreciating how amazing our world is. I spent this weekend in the Yorkshire Dales, and while the temperatures were a damn sight colder than in Brazil the things we saw were amazing. There are some beautiful caves and limestone outcrops in that part of the UK. So while I broke down in another minibus (I've had 2 breakdown this year, all the other drivers haven't had a single one!), and nearly got stuck in a field, and didn't do any climbing it was a pretty cool weekend with lots of drinking, and plenty of banter!
