  • Moralmente, é tão condenável ao querer saber se uma coisa é verdade ou não, desde que ela nos dê prazer, quanto não quer saber como conseguimos o dinheiro desde que ele esteja na nossa mão.

  • We had started picking up signs a day earlier. A barefoot track in the soft mud on the edge of a waterhole; a sapling stripped of bark to tie down something; a patch of white-grey ash where a lone hunter had spent the night when darkness caught him – close to a tree so he could sit with his back against the trunk and the fire between his legs.

Humans. We had to be within a day or two from one of those lone villages in the bush. So we were not surprised when we caught the feint drift of human voices and then, when we followed the sound, found this group.  It was an overcast morning and the breeze goose-pimpled our skins in the bare parts but it did not deter the men in the water, some shoulder-deep. They chatted in short gasps from the cold but they were happy for what they had managed to haul with the nets they had so painfully lugged through the bush, originally all the way from Lake Tanganyika, some two hundred kilometres to the west. 
These were migrant fish from the big river that got stranded in the pool when the riverine dried to a few pools with the turn of the season. They were small. All of them. They hadn’t had time to grow. 
The pool was being fished too heavily. The village was getting to big. Soon it would overpower the bush’s ability to support it. Some of its happy residents would have to move out, to towns, find work. But what? They had lived in the bush all their lives. 
But they would move out, to the little towns, then to the cities, then across borders in the impossible hope of finding something…

  • A shadow in the light.

The Reef Manta Ray (Mobula alfredi) is one of the largest rays in the world, growing to around 12ft.

This was one of three that were feeding in the lagoon here at Dhigurah. Totally oblivious of our presence they kept gliding through the water feeding, getting so close as to even nudge a couple of us on their way.
