Rio-Antigua / Andrews 70 ‘Runaway’

The Wizard of OZ, which is that Dorothy’s ‘no place like home’ ending is all wrong. After a trip like that, you can’t go home…Stepping across the line into OZ transformed her into a seeker of the wider world, as all good voyages do. The journey creates us, we become the frontiers we cross…

-Salmon Rushdie

We rescued this poor baby floating face down in the bay of Rio de Janero as we left and named him ‘Pee’ 😉 He was our good luck charm !!
