Whitewater Rafting on the Urubamba River, Peru
One of the more exciting things I've done on my trips was a white water trip down the Urubamba River in Peru. Little did I know that it was one of the top places in the world to do it and we had an amazing guide. For whatever reason they put me up in front, which I guess was a good thing as I was otherwise paranoid something in front of me would paddle too hard and hit me in the face with their oar! Fortunately that didn't happen, but I did get pretty banged up when the bottom of the raft hit some rocks. Lots of fun. I felt free from the daily burdens of life back home as a lawyer.
