Flag of Spain  , Canary Islands,
Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Arrived in Gran canaria at 02am and even there my bottle of water didnt show up on the x-ray scans.. I lay down for a nap and in the morning book a ticket with islas airways back to Tenerife north. Binter is way more expensive and i have to pay more as i don't have my residencia on me..

My good buddy and photography mentor, Mike Bolognesi picks me up from the airport. His first reaction was pretty shocking!  i had lost a great deal of weight.

It was very odd being back, everything was almost robotic.. i'd go buy something and everything is a fixed price or automatic. I had to get used to civilization again. It was far worse than i expected..
My stomach had also shrunk, i ordered a steak that same night but couldn't even eat half of it. The next day i had diarrhea again but because i wasn't used to western food anymore.

The trip had been demanding but certainly an incredible experience and thank Jay for taking me with him. I would repeat it again without thinking twice. It was a pure adventure, totally unprepared and seeing how we got through was part of the daily tour.

Im in the cold winter now and did some unexpected travelling. Lets see what the future holds..
