Someone back home asked me how my trip was going so far. I told them I don’t even know where to begin. I told them I was exhausted and felt displaced, like maybe I accidently got in the wrong van and lost the LAAW van back at Wild Rivers. I could not really reply with fully formed thoughts so I sent them a vocabulary list to get them started: colonialism, extractivism, exploitation, and cultural genocide.
I really have nothing more to say about this place except that the one thing they (the security officers at the dam) don’t want you to talk about seems like the only thing that matters now: SABOTAGE.
