He hopes to have a second child with a partner in a few years. He wants to travel to South America and explore the unexplored areas of the Amazon. He wanted to explore the uninhabited heart of the jungle, but the tribes he was interested in discovering had been “civilized” by then. He traveled to Venezuela, Colombia, and then to Bolivia to meet up with friends. He met Karl Ruprechter, a mysterious Austrian who claimed to be a geologist. He told him he was planning an expedition into the uncharted Amazon in Bolivia, in search of gold in a remote, indigenous Tacana village. The four of them, never having had prior contact with each other, delved into a Bolvian adventure seeking gold. Eventually, low on supplies, they had to eat monkeys. Under these conditions, they decided to abandon their journey and return to Asaramias. They decided to continue rafting downriver to Ipurama River to walk up the river’s source, and return from there near the Apolo village.
