March 18, 1998
Its midnight March 18th, in the waiting room in Brasilias airport. Bright flourescents, dim faces. Weve been on the road for nearly 36 hoursand we think were actually doing pretty well. The crewvideographer Scott Enlow, and NASA satellite experts John Diamond and Greg Kubat, are looking punchy after the overnight flight from Miami (and wed all started earlier that day from Cleveland, OH, New Jersey and Nashville, TN.) If I looked in a mirror, Id add myself to that list.
Wed gone through customs in Rio: lots of paperwork, but with careful preparation from our partners at NEON RIO (a film and TV company that specializes in supporting natural history projects in the Amazonthanks, Flavio Somogyi and Dudu Continentino) all went smoothlyso smoothly, in fact, that we actually had a unexpected couple of hours to make it out of the airport and down the freeway to see the incredible views from Corcovado, the massive statue of Christ, with arms outstretched, which towers high over Rio. Expect some pictures of LFRF playing tourist in a future Journal entry on the Web.
Then it was back to the airport... back on board our jet, and off to Brasilia.
