    Each of you is able to nominate a champion. I imagine it being comelately vs padraig, they're both pretty ripped.

    Or each of you sits on the shoulders of one our resident giants like Eden and Danny and then you battle it out like you were both Master-Blaster from Mad Max.

    Yes and yes. But it's for his own good

    you probably spent a lot more time in mexico and got a better feel for what life was actually like for the people. the boys would have been keener to spend longer at each place but, like a madman, i was seig heil we must keep moving forward.

    i'm knocking on 50 now and certainly i remember a phase of "looking back" very strongly.
    hey Matt, meant to write a response to this, got occupied with other things

    I guess I did get a reasonable feel for what people's life was like. we rotated thru projects - potable water systems - in a number of village.

    otoh there was a vast cultural gap that was completely unbridgeable even for the guys I was working for, who'd been working in the area for years.

    partially that was b/c it was a low-intensity conflict zone. most (maybe all) the villages were Zapatista territory, so there was automatically an air of the unspoken.

    but even without that, the culture shock was intense in a number of ways I'd find hard to articulate here without writing a much longer post.

    I certainly cannot imagine playing records for people or talking about music etc. we did usually play soccer with each village's men every day after work.

    anyway, I always thought the African techno journey was a pretty amazing project in its uniqueness/ambition/belief in the power of human connection

    (and that is coming from a thoroughly cynical + disillusioned person)

    I assume one thing we'd share is being very glad that we did something like that at a time in our respective lives when that was possible
