In the beginning of 2019 I was lucky to join The Viracocha III Expedition led by Phil Buck in the experience of crossing the ocean on a reed raft. It was to show that ancient-style ships made of reeds millenniums ago were capable to cover long distances over the sea, therefore might have carried first civilizations across the world causing their migration and trade.
We were crew of eight who lived through it together but, perhaps, perceived differently. This is the story from just one angle and through the prism of my Ukrainian eyes.
