Dear Chris and Dear Gerry,

There hasn't been a day since I last saw you that I haven't thought about you and the profound experience in the Amazon. It has been one of the most important, cherished and life-changing adventures so far and I am dreaming and longing for more.

Natascha, my perceptive and lovely daughter, said that when she saw me that she'd never seen me so alive. It was a bit of a shock, which made me think and realize, of course, I had just come back from the most immensely beautiful and truly alive - in all senses of the word - places on this planet, with extraordinary open hearted people. She also said, "You must go back. It looks like you have found your place!"

So here I am in grey, cold London longing to be back in the Amazon. How are you both, and how was your month in Iquitos? I missed you a lot and still do, and miss Maximo, too.

I've just realized how inadequate I feel to express my heartfelt gratitude for you both. I will never forget how you appeared in the room offering to come with you for the last week on the boat - a grand gesture and life changing for me. I loved every minute of it. Thank you.

What you've done, and hopefully continue to do with your trips is most important and admirable and I very much would like to play a part in it and help you in any way I can. There are 3-4 people in London who are interested in your voyage so far. I have talked about my experience and shown my photographs to most of my friends and will continue to do so. What I need is a future date of the next trip and cost (approximation) for one, two, and three weeks. Also some more brochures. Enclosed are some photographs. I am so pleased to have a spirit one. Will be in touch by phone. In the meantime,

Much Love,
