Two bottles traveling with the Mississippi

photo dan und deborah5Dan and Deborah helped this project along by throwing two of my bottles into the Mississippi a little south of Minneapolis to avoid the Minneapolis locks. Apparently there are a couple more dams until the Mississippi Delta, but I guess that water locks will be the least problem for the bottles, and the many islands, side arms and curves will provide enough obstacles to make it unlikely that they will even see the next lock. But who knows…

Dan und Deborah, zwei Freunde aus Minneapolis haben mir mit meinem Projekt weitergeholfen, indem sie zwei Flaschen in den Mississippi geworfen haben. Offenbar sind sie bessere Werfer als ich, denn die Flaschen haben die Bäume überwunden, wie das letzte Bild zeigt, und sind nun auf dem Weg flussabwärts.
