In my last post about Angkor Dreams, Prashanth wrote about Peru, which triggered thoughts of a few more things I have been longing for. Prashanth said
” And I’m dreaming of Peru – after reading a book from Nemichandra – Peruvina pavitra kaniveyalli..”
To give you a background on his comment, Nemichandra is a scientist, writer and obsessed traveller. And the book he is referring to describes her amazing journey into Machhu Picchu and then sailing down the Amazons into its thick evergreen forests.
Amazon is one of the dreams I have been living with for long. Infact I had even budgeted it once, worked out a plan, checked ticket prices and options of travelling – considerable homework for someone who would not really be making it! 😀 I did not make the journey, but the thought remains – Amazon is one of the regions I intend to travel into, before all those thick unpenetrated forests end up as tissues in North America’s kitchens and bathrooms!
For those who are interested, Kon-Tiki by Heyerdahl is an another interesting book to read. It is a journey that starts in the forests of South America and ends up as an adventurous sailing journey into Polynesia.
