After a 10 hour flight from Amsterdam, a 4 hour time zone change and 6 hours sleep in a hotel somewhere in Paramaribo, I found myself on a small supply vessel heading down the Paramaribo river through tropical rain forest for the 20 hour passage to my working vessel somewhere out in the North Atlantic.

It is not often I get to see a new species of marine mammal so finding a small pod of Tucuxi river dolphins was a real bonus!!
