2015-08-26: "Just one thing: maybe sometimes someone have to come and watch us. because the first night we have to spend our night on the raft but ot attach because it was to late for one of us to take the risk and it was to cold. We keep a good memorie of this night but maybe other people need to be rassured. unless it was perfect!"
