Update on the "Feeesh Mawn"

The latest posts about Martin Strel's marathon swim down the Amazon River are both frightening and inspiring. The official site is reporting that there have been river pirates in their area. These are not your Johnny Depp "Pirates of the Carribean" types. These blokes are known to occasionally pose as police and go especially well armed. So far so good for Martin's team though. No hassles yet! Keeping our fins crossed here on dry land. On the inspiring side, the site reports Martin has a new name favored by his new Brazilian fans, "Feeesh Mawn" (try pronouncing it slowly). Go Mawn go! By the way, the pictures from the web site are simply beautiful and amazing. Spend a moment and check'm out - and no, Splash Dog isn't being paid to say this - just is very envious.
