Troede denne film fra Uganda var forsvundet…

Forleden fandt jeg en film i mit  rod.

Det er optagelser jeg ikke har kunnet finde i aarevis. Optagelser fra vores rejse rundt om Victoria Lake i Afrika i 2006 hvor vi stoedte ind i en kaempe Silver Back og hans familie i Bwindi i Uganda naer graensen til Rwanda.

Jeg bennyttede mig af min Insomnia (og den hurtige netforbindelse) i nat til at samle de fire smaa filmklip Annette tog, lave dem skarpe, fjerne de vaerste rystelser og uploadede den til YouTube (saa er de i hvert tilfaelde ikke lost).

Naar folk spoerger hvad der er det mest interessante vi har set under vores rejser, er det ikke Manchu Pichu, Pyramiderne, Den Kinesisk mur eller alle de andre sevaerdigheder man altid laeser om…

At se denne gorilla familie i dens naturlige omgivelser – inklusiv hele turen dertil er ubetinget noget af det stoerste…

Her er beskrivelsen af filmen fra YouTube

 

On our trek we were so ‘lucky’ to block the Silver Back’s way to his family – to get to his kids he had to pass by me. When he was closest I could touch him – we were less than a meter from each other which scared the S*** of the young American next to me…

During the morning brief before the trek we were told to sit down and look to the ground if a situation like this would happen. I did the opposite. I stood up, looked him into his deep brown eyes an felt a very strong connection. A deep understanding between us… I was very close to hugging him….:-)

Annette was so clever to switch the camera to video (for the first time ever) and captured it all. 

 

PS
The following week a Silver Back like our friend was shot in the same location by illegal hunters from Rwanda who have never looked a Gorilla in his eyes…. if they had they would not have been able to take this precious living being’s life…
