Years ago I played in a canoe just like this, falling repeatedly into tropical water to the delight of sweet, smiling, short lived kids. Given the mortality in that region, most of those children will have grown, had children of their own and already died, while I, a denizen of the first world, live on unharmed.

That is a wonderful photo, Marc! The shape of the canoe against the thrilling color of the water. Perfect.

I feel a bit of a cheat as I merely steal these pictures from a preselection by Igoogle. All of them come from flickr.
