Hit the road, Jack! (part 3)


Two days and two nights alone in the Grand Canyon… Well, most of the time: there was Charlie to watch over me. Montana had given him a call, informing him of my visit. Self-defined as an army brat, Charlie traveled the world as a soldier. He has now been working as a volunteer park ranger for the past year or two. Charlie likes the rides in his white jeep, the company of his dog, J-Lo, and the fantastic view he enjoys from his trailer. He invited me for a beer the afternoon I arrived, and it knocked me down so hard I had to take a nap and didn’t get to take pictures or film this charismatic character. Cheers to you, friend!

    A masterpiece–both the film and your travels/life taking place. I love this, Diako. You look so free, as you should be. Your voice reminds me of the narrator of Sans Soleil by Chris Marker, a film that soothed me into another existence. I hope we can see some more soon and that a little someone continues to watch over you through your journey.
