Clipperton island scientific expedition

Right: normal cup. Left: 2 cups taken deep down on the sub
 to the Titanic with Bonita in 1996. Crushed by the pressure.
EN: The best part of being a member of the Explorers Club is that I meet incredible people who have so many interesting stories to tell. I'm staying in San Diego at Bonita and Dick Long's house. Today I talked about the Amazon with Rocky Contos who discovered (very potentially) the new furthest source of the Amazon river. His photos and the way he explained me his findings left me with no doubt I was talking to a very smart person, avid kayaker with a deep common sense to prove he has not only discovered but also went down the entire length of the river a few months ago. Tomorrow, I leave on a boat as I joined the Expedition Clipperton so I won't blog before the end of March. Go on the site and follow the expedition's blog.

FR: Le plus chouette lorsqu'on est membre de l'Explorers Club, c'est que l'on rencontre des personnes incroyables qui ont du vécu très intéressant. Je suis à San Diego chez Bonita et Dick Long. J'ai discuté aujourd'hui avec Rocky Contos qui a découvert et visté il y a quelques mois la nouvelle source la plus éloignée du fleuve Amazone. Il m'a montré ses photos et expliqué ses trouvailles. Un homme intelligent, doué de bon sens et kayakiste de rivière accompli. Demain, je pars en bateau pour car j'ai joint l'expédition Clipperton donc plus de blog avant fin Mars. Allez voir le blog de l'expé.
