The 1994 Explore Diving Calendar
by H.C. Solomon
Growing up in New York, I had many dreams of grand adventures. I read the books of Joshua Slocum about sailing alone around the world. Jack London was another favorite, along with Joseph Conrad and Rudyard Kipling.
I dreamt of cruising Lake Victoria and Mt. Kilamanjaro, Rio de Janeiro, with Copa Caba Beach and carnival, and Barcelona. I read about the maroons of Jamaica and the runaway slaves during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries who roamed the countryside harassing the British until the abolition of the slave trade in 1807.
Well, a lot of these dreams have become reality, and this book is a record of some of the places I visited. Hope you enjoy it.
