1. Crikey…we did it! You did it!! Kickstarter success!

    We can’t thank everyone enough for all the support and encouragement over these last months, including ‘An Exchange’ for Jason Florio’s fine art photo prints (still running on the River Gambia Expedition blog by the way, so it’s not too late!) and on Kickstarter.

    It’s our last day before we fly down to West Africa and lots of running around (nothing new there, then), to begin the River Gambia Expedition proper. We’ll post more updates later…soon…once we can breathe again ;)

    BIG LOVE and gratitude to everyone…we are truly humbled.
