MP and his altitude sickness. The food poisoning from Sahara. The dhow. The heat. The cold. Malaria. Bugs. Fish with barbs that swim up a stream of urine and...Lack of sleep. Hunger. Bogota. etc. etc.
I am in awe of MP and his crew! You guys are amazing!
Merry Christmas...

And he kept in such relatively good humour about it, like he has in so many other tight situations. Now THAT'S impressive! :O)

I think there is a saying from Eric Newby, which is something along the lines of "Adventure is that which seems like hell on earth at the time, but sounds divine when back at home with a cup of hot tea.". I'd agree with whoever wrote it (even if it was'nt Newby). Because none of the stuff above is any fun whatsoever when it's happening to you. It only sounds great when back home..LOL. All such adventures are usually a nightmare at the time. Yet, from memory perspective they feel like the best experiences of your life. Like a coin, adventure has 2 faces. :)

I just remembered Michael playing the prisoner in the dungeon in Life of Brian, hanging by shackles..LOL. It could apply to his recent misfortunes - "You lucky lucky b*****d...Spat in the face?...bloody favouritisim for ya. Hard time?...they only hung me the right way up yesterday".
