Caye Caulker, Belize
Traveling to Central America resulted in new inspirations. Fabulous Caye Caulker island in Belize is a place where time is irrelevant and the only problem is to open a coconut. A hitch-hike ride on a truck full of pineapples and limes is by far better than riding limo. Every experience has its accompanying emotions which cause the discovering desire to increase uncontrollably.
Not always. Sometimes the only wish is to stop the time. Laguna Lachua is a beautiful lake of meteorite origin in Guatemala. The crystal clear water is close to thirty degrees warm. Plenty of submerged crater rocks are phenomenally blended into the overall landscape. It is an unforgettable feeling to be here at five in the morning to enjoy the view highlighted by subtle wildlife sounds coming from surrounding jungle. Natural wonders and unique coincidences. The hope in the eyes of a Honduran girl who just has earned a dollar selling a doll made by her mother. A warm tropical rain on coffee plantation. Fantastic people met in the colonial towns and hot salsa rhythms lasting all night long.
Twenty some hour jeep drive brings us right to the Kashmir near Pakistan border. Our driver yawns subtly, which raises my concern. Particularly bearing in mind that this huge ravine on the other side of the road is several hundred meters deep. On the average three cars per day might fall. A beautiful, full of adrenaline route.
Srinagar residents lead simple lives. In return they possess the beautiful valley and breathtaking trekking routes. Spiritual place. Rishikesh and long-awaited meal served with a papaya lassi and ice cream at the foot of Himalaya with a view on Ganges river turning up north. I wonder how this place might look like at the sunset. For tonight I have no more questions.
Diu, an ex-portuguese island in southern Gujarat. A relief served by wind while riding a motorbike along the Arabic Sea coast with lots of palm trees on the sides. We wake up at dawn to buy freshly caught manta, barracuda and eel from fishermen. Combined with local vegetables and spices we have an all day barbecue on the beach. As soon as it gets too hot I bodysurf on waves. Nothing more nothing less. I appreciate life and the world for that they are so beautiful.
