Hammock Privileges (sick in 46)

08 September 2003 (Venezuela) by Ben Glass


During our stay at San Flaviano I was knocked off my feet
by a mystery illness. Subsequently I was ruled out of a big
test match on the oval and restricted to rest. Daniel, Dawn
and Dexter offered up their hammock on the verandah and I
drifted off into the blissful abyss.

During my recovery an unfortunate photo portrayed me as the
lazy boss in the hammock overlooking the workers slaving
away in the plantation. It's not true I tells ya!

The young lads in the village were interested in a few of
the tools in our kit eg solar panels, our Katadyn water filter, camp
stove etc. Their interest was such that they took to filtering
the water for us, and with Kendon on the prowl with the
camera we have this incriminating photo as a result.

You do believe me don't you?

Good, now get back to work!
