So I’ve been working there for about 3 months now, and have been fortunate enough to have done quite a bit of travel with work.

A huge dugout canoe on the Purari River. I had to get a boat up the river to reach the gas drill site, 45 minutes and all I saw was rainforest and the odd village. Really remote place.

My first trip there in March and we had a helicopter shit at. The bullet went through the chin bubble and out the windscreen, narrowly missed the pilot.

Interesting pics Andy, though they would have been better if tilting one's head to the left wasn't required.

Right-click on the image, choose Open image in a new tab, then click on that tab and you see it properly oriented. You may also see more of the image than is visible as posted (that dugout canoe, for example).
I enjoy reading NorthAmerican's posts. So well-written and interesting except for the dull parts.--Nines

Hatter it’s not grazing land, basically it’s the same topography once you get to a certain elevation.
