Date: Sunday 6th May
Venue: Tullycross Church
Shane Young took off last November into one of the last undiscovered parts of the world, the depths of the Colombian Amazon basin in a place rendered inaccessible by the FARC guerillas for the last 20 years, and prior to that by the inhospitable nature of the surrounds. He and a team of Polish explorers sought out ancient Rock art which has survived for the last 10,000 years untouched. The talk will cover the trials and tribulations of getting into the middle of the Amazon and how they managed to find the place that has been described as ”The Sistine Chapel of the Amazon”. The expedition was documented by Michael Dzikowski for National Geographic Poland and his photos will be used to bring the expedition to life.
