A Box of Rain

A Box of Rain

I bless the rains down in Africa

--Toto (1982)

When we traveled into the Amazon via a flying/floating sardine can, the wife and I were limited to 44 pounds of luggage apiece. I suppose we could’ve pushed it, but I’m pretty fond of the idea of not dying in a fiery crash, so we adhered to the requirement. We’re told that for our upcoming five country trip to Africa, we can have no more than 33 pounds apiece. That includes rods, reels, tackle, clothing and toiletries for nearly three weeks of travel.
