Jungle Marathon 2008
I was just visited by Shirley Thompson, the idealiser of Jungle Marathon.
I have great admiration for her as a woman of attitude and as a transparent friend.
The jungle Marathon is an amazing event in the heart of Brazilian Amazon in which local communities are truly involved and benefited and participants from all over the world have a chance to learn about the Tapajos National Forest and its people plus run the wildest marathon in the world.
I was the photographer and interpreter from last year's version. I am happy to know that some of the runners are returning again, an evidence that the competition is quite terrific, and the 2008 version will ceratainly be much much better. I am sure everyone will be much more fitted.
