So, we'd like to carry a boat for going down rivers and exploring curious things on water, while being self sufficient with food and camping equipment. Giving up on the boat and building bamboo rafts was one of the propositions:) We ended up buying a small 12kg inflatible kayak that packs in a 60L backpack,

I've discovered today that we are completely defeated by this awesome guy 200 years ago.

1840s, Peter Halkett Invented an unusual boat.

Halkett had long been interested in the difficulties of travelling in the Canadian Arctic, and the problems involved in designing boats light enough to be carried over arduous terrain, but robust enough to be used in extreme weather conditions. the hull of the boat could be worn as a cloak, the oar used as a walking stick, and the sail as an umbrella

Spurred on by the successful testing of the boat-cloak, Halkett designed a larger version that folded into a knapsack. When inflated, it could carry two men, operating a paddle on each side, and when deflated served as a waterproof blanket to allow the users to camp on wet ground Although the Admiralty saw no use to which Halkett's designs could be put in general naval service, this larger design was extremely well received by explorers

Ended up sneaking past a few guards, one of them taking a shower. The building below us has 20-30 stories, I'm guessing the crane was 80-100m high? A long climb. Where do crane workers go to toilet? Also. my god! I want to do this again.

After the crane.

Crane was awesome, it was dinosaur and monster.

After the crane, I feel a little bit empty, that's the thing."

We are talking to a random french couple, answering common questions and ending up explaining that we've met by going into the subway tunnels through an airduct. They mention seeing some photos of us climbing a building in hongdae park and I wonder if that was the night when the crazy guy in the underwear climbed it with us. At some point I say something like

remember that girl from yesterday that wanted us to smuggle diamonds from africa? I think she might be a stripper.

To which a guy asks us if those are real events or are we talking about a spy movie, and I realize how weird our conversation sounds from another persons perspective, and how most of the things that have been happening would sound, and I conclude that we did good.

I bought a climbing equipment and all places are reacheable now. I'm living with Kanghee, and a great group of friends are around. We are planning to buy a ~15 meter sailboat and sail through philipines to papua new guinea next year. we'll see how that goes. we'll have a lot to learn before doing this.
