Visit to San Francisco

This past weekend I was in San Francisco visiting my friend Ian Mackenzie. Ian is a brilliant anthropologist and his life’s work has been working with and writing the only dictionary for the Penan of Indonesia. The Penan is an indigenous Bornean rainforest tribe whose way of life is being forever changed by rampant resource extraction.

In 1995 he published Nomads of the Dawn with Wade Davis and Shane Kennedy. To this day it remains a powerful, tragic testimony to a disappearing way of life.

Ryan’s Mini

Wilderness guide & fellow traveler Jim Taylor got the Mini from http://www.ryansminiadventure.com/HOME.html,
took it to Antarctica and Art photographed it.
Ryan Marie Boykin was wonderful little girl who passed away from leukemia at the age of 3. Her Matchbox cars were her favorite toys and her favorite Matchbox was a red… Mini Cooper. As a tribute to Ryan’s spirit, travelers have been taking Minis all over the world, and now Antarctica has been conquered.
