Agats Town - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 18 May 2012 in Transportation and Portfolio.

The day after our visit to Syuru, we travelled up river to the town of Agats. In this shot, you see one of our skillful Zodiac drivers with his eyes on course. My fellow passengers all look lost in thought. No doubt thinking about the expedition ahead of us.
