BACKGROUND FOR BABELFISH
Toronto is my home base. Ashley is my
22-year old, astonishingly competent, mature, independent daughter who is my
passion. I am a lawyer with a family firm located downtown Toronto where I
handle a general practice focussed mainly on transactional law, both real
estate and general commercial/corporate work plus a growing estate practice.
However, I do not let my law practice and other such minor matters get in the
way of my most important life’s work, which is why I am so enthusiastic
about joining Tony and crew aboard Babelfish on this trip.
this part of the Pacific, I will be regularly monitoring the fishing line
trolled behind Babelfish in the hope that we land a rare Salsa-dancing,
Tequila-pouring mermaid which, subject to further study, will help complete an
unfinished chapter in Darwin’s thesis.
Upon arrival in New Zealand,
I will be setting off into the tropical volcanic valleys in search of a very
shy native tribe called Miata (distant cousins of the Maori). The women of
this tribe are known to be tall with very long legs. And similar to certain
native African tribes, they wear a number of rings, in this case around their
tongue, which they remove while mating. Fortunately for me, the males of this
tribe tend to be docile.
With any kind
of luck, this trip will allow me to make discoveries that will be of
considerable benefit to all mankind for generations to come.
