In the wilderness lies the preservation of the world.
Henry David Thoreau
Surrounded by Wilderness – Day 4
Waking up – and then realizing that we are in the wilderness. Early in the morning, we begin going up the Toba River step by step. Our first stop is at a sandbank, and then we slowly continue traveling up the green-blue river. We reach the place where we will spend the night.
A few others, who are still at the first sandbank, have the chance to see a bear!
An incredibly full and exciting day ends with a birthday song for Hannes and a comfortable evening around the campfire in a wonderfully quiet place.
