Visitors from Kentucky
Right in the middle of a very large group of German passengers on a passing cruise ship, I discovered a handful of Americans from the State of Kentucky. Serendipity was with me because I had brought a University of Kentucky baseball cap to the Bosque that day, one that Waldinor Mota and his wife had brought me on one of their recent returns to Santarem. I quickly ran to the car for it and in no time we had a fast reunion right on the porch of the reception center. That's me with these beautiful ladies! They were holding up quite well from a long walk in very hot tropical weather. What the picture doesn't show are a number of other folks with their tongues hanging out from the heat. By the way, my pleasure in meeting cohorts from Kentucky is that I graduated from Berea College, Kentucky, back in 1962. Image, Jeremy Campbell.
