Me and my trustworthy baby...

 

Desperately trying to access my already typed updates on my cellphone gmail app
Pos: here
Loc: Sao Luis
Acc: Sandra´s apartment

OH PEST ON IT… I was typing with some effort every night my full updates into the gmail app on my cellphone, saving it nicely as drafts as I was not able to send them off on the way, but it turns out that I can´t get the app working online again. My IT-skilled Peter can´t help either…

No copy and paste possible, but at least reading and now eventually typing them manually into the matching blog entries. But sorry this will take some time… besides all other online work like pictures and tracks I have to do. At least I got a good laptop borrowed and good internet access in my a/c room…back to work!

—————————————————

After manually copying one single entry with lots of effort I tried and tried again together with Peter to get this gmail app online to be able to send and not re-type my already written update  – BINGO, at 7 pm we cracked it! All  long  updates since Belem and the matching pictures and tracks and waypoint are up now!!!

Besides, I did the usual on a first recovery day, little sleep due to the online distraction, much work and long calls to my family. I got fed nicely, and Jadiel got some private theoretical kayak lessons, all translated by Lucas. He seems to be the only seriously interested sea kayaker by now in Sao Luis, but loves to change this, having such a pretty coast line on the doorstep! Some more reporter took pics, all easy going. My skin is slowly healing, but some sores are still infected. Both of my cameras didin´t survive the humid heat, I may have to buy new ones locally which should be possible. Same can’t be said for the broken laptop…but fortunately all pics on the memeory card are safe and I could pull them off and I have my cell phone to type at least the updates every night. But don´t even think if you have good cell phone connection there is also internet…

When I followed my own track eventually on the satellite images which I did not have accessible on this leg since Belem, I saw I could have taken on two or three headlands some better path, as it was kind of a blind flight through this maze with this imprecise chart and paper map. But I arrived eventually! I will be able to prepare the next leg better this time, having a laptop and good online access all days, different to Belem where online time was short and mostly bad.

I eventually firmly decided to paddle at least until Fortaleza, dumping being home for my 50th birthday on the 10th of May in favour of the short low wind weather window until about June. After June it will be constant 20 knots wind until maybe End of September/ October when I can start over again to pass the notoriously windy easternmost corner of the continent and to eventually be on the home stretch!
