This is me, and I am being a voyageur because I am making money for my family, my father would normally do this,but he has cut off his thumb when he was chopping wood.
i got you!!!
I have been rowing for along time I am tired, I am not going to show it to the others, they might just think I am a complaining child.no one has really said a word , we are mostly singing,pretty quiet.My arms are in pain and I have a few blisters,but those I can handle I really do miss my home town.
The boat was sinking,because one person leaned back and the boat sprung a leak! Now we are all sinking! I did not want to cry or scream , the other men would think I was childish,one boy screamed I was happy that was not him. The ride seemed endless, I wanted it to end! we were being rocked back and forth for such along time.
We set out on the water after almost losing a person I would think my crew mates would have picked the safer route! But they did not, thanks to them we almost lost another guy! I manged to pull him up before he drowned!I almost fell off my self but I caught my self,if I did not I don't know if they would save me.
Every one danced and sang songs we ate a wonderful meal! I was really tired and I wanted to sleep but after singing a little i decided to stay and watch. I was really tired by the time they were done, but no one else was! they had their own celebration for arriving here.
Most of us are heading home, one of my crew mates are going up further. I really miss home it was sometimes fun but sometimes scary on the trip here. I don't know if i will do it next year. If I do I will make sure to be prepared!
