Update – March 7, 2013: ‘An Exchange’ and Kickstarter donors

We are currently working on a pdf of Jason Florio’s images from the River Gambia Expedition – for those of you who donated $100+ – for you to make your print choices from. We got back to NYC about 3 weeks ago and hit the ground running – an interview with Outside Mag, which you can check out here.; and interview with Boyd Matson for National Geographic Weekend radio – which will run this weekend (we’ll post the podcast on the blog when we get it); and, most importantly, we’ve been reliving the journey – now that we can get online again, we can update the blog – and trawling through three months worth of images. Suffice to say, it all takes time

Lastly, we’ll also be sending a postcard – with one of Floro’s images, taken whilst our West Africa exploration – to absolutely everyone of you who helped us make the journey happen. We know it sounds clichéd, but we really could not have done it without your support. For that, we are truly thankful.

We’ll be right back at you shortly, with the pdf!

Big Love and thanks for your patience,

Helen & Florio

P.S. There is one image though, taken on the expedition, that we can guarantee will be in that PDF:

Another invaluable donation just came in – the Epi Pens! We can tick that off our ‘Wish List’!

Our thanks to Christy, USA, for her invaluable and very generous donation to the River Gambia Expedition 2012 – which we can now tick off our ‘Donations & Wish List!’

Christy has worked closely with our good friend, Rob Swain, for ’4th Wall Relief International’ - a group of volunteers who are doing great work on the Thai/Burma border – and the ‘Karen Department of Health & Welfare‘, Burma
