    ...is still fairly common. A girl from Spain was held for ransom, which was paid, while I was there two years ago. I never really worry about danger, but the Wayuu happen to be on top of an oil deposit. That makes it dangerous to be around THEM. Oddly, I feel safer in Bogota than I do in the desert. The Urabenos and the Rastrojos are right-wing paras who control the drug routes. Which happen to go through Wayuu lands. The rich business interests use them for political murders.

    I really don't want to live on Earth anymore....

      being destroyed, it is the people, not the Earth, that I want to escape from. And only a minority of the people, actually - the uncaring, greedy, selfish, destructive ones. The majority of people are good at heart, even if often misinformed.

      When I am alone in the wilderness, I am utterly happy. But we are social beings, and after a few weeks I find myself seeking out company. People - can't live with them, can't live without them. It's a problem...
