Bim Peacock believes that it is ridiculous to write a bio about himself, but considering he is currently at gunpoint, he has little other option.  He enjoys long wanders through the forest free from this oppressive schooling regime and loves the feeling of the ocean waves much more than this chain around his ankle.  The freedom of the world is his greatest love of all, yet, as his communist oppressors now inform him, the love for his classroom should suppress that.

The archeologist Ivan Šprajc investigates his surroundings in the jungles of Mexico.  The Slovenian man began exploring the wilds of the region in 1996 in search of ancient Mayan ruins.  “On several occasions weve had two, three weeks of just cutting through the bush to get to some location, without knowing what we would find… When we get to the site it feels like a big victory.”

As it turned out, the job came out as more than just a personal experience.  The three generations of men on my dad’s side all came out to work: Tom (Grandfather), Thomas (Father), and me (Thomas is my middle name, imagine that).
