This view of the ocean gives me an opportunity to mention that there is an article in the newspaper about a 56 year old German woman, Renate Herberger, who is swimming the entire 1,000 km (600 miles) length of the Costa Rican coast of the Pacific Ocean. She wears a face mask and flippers so she can enjoy the marine life.
She gives talks to local people and school groups along the way to increase awareness and appreciation for marine life. When she has a support boat, she takes short breaks every half hour in her 8 hour swim days. Some days, she swims by herself without a support boat. The newspaper said people can email to her at firstname.lastname@example.org. What a wonderful, dedicated human being.
Here is a link to the newspaper article about her.
This week we are showing photos of the patterns in the animals and plants of Tanzania on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
