Mongolia, 2011. We are travelling to the north of Mongolia, on the way to lake Hovsghol. My driver, who kindly had given us a ride, stops the car. He is about to follow a shamanistic ritual. Already drunk, he finishes his vodka bottle and takes three turns clockwise around a large pile of rocks, skulls and bottles of Vodka. It is an Ovo, a shaman shrine which offers protection to the travellers.
Late in the afternoon, a man stands by himself in a narrow street in a poor, and usually busy, area of Shanghai. For a few seconds, he seems to be alone. I find this image to be strangely peaceful.
Its 6PM. In a few hours our massive freighter shall start its engines and head into the Pacific Ocean. But before, we must check our emergency rafts. So here we are, taking it for a short spin!
Its breakfast time in Carti, a little island in the San Blas Archipelago. I was there for two days, waiting for a boat to come by that might take me to Colombia. I did not take make picture of Kuna people, as they usually did not approve of that. This time, though, I was allowed to take the photo and was fortunate enough to capture this tender moment.
Belize, 2012 7AM. I wake up after a massive storm that literally made me jump off the bed. I look outside my bedroom window and this is what I see. Yes, we are still in Belize. Take a chill pill.
