You probably think of piranha when thinking about the Amazon river. We were on a fishing expedition for piranha. My wife, the pilot, and our guide all caught piranha -- mostly red bellied, but a couple white bellied. Above is my one catch. It is a sardine (about 10", 25 cm). I'm amused, or puzzled, or something. I'm happy about it. It's a reminder of the fact that the world is more involved and weirder than you might think. And a reminder than if there's weirdness to be found, I'll be the one to find it.

Didn't mean to disappear quite that long, 2.5 months it turns out. Well, I'll be picking up my posting again. In the interim, I've been on vacation in the Peruvian Amazon, picture below, been a manager at work, and generally running around.
