Captain’s Log-21 July 2013-Striking Likeness

Portrait of me by Jonathan Blomberg, one of our pilots here in East Congo.  He is very talented and captured my striking physique almost perfectly if I do say so myself.  I can tell it is me by the necklace if nothing else. Thanks Jonathan.

      Jon, great site. I have a question Im hoping you can help me with–Im an American living in Kampala, Uganda. I am wondering if/how I can fly I guess out of Nairobi to Vilanculos, @600 kms north side of Maputo, Mozambique, from where I could get another plane or ski boat, I am told, to Bazaruto, the Benguerra, Magaruque and Bangue islands. Ive never flown bush planes really, and f you have ideas/suggestions as to where I could research this possibility, for this Xmas time, I’d be most appreciative! randrobinson@hotmail.com

    Very good likeness, except for the smile is missing. 🙂

    Oh, this made me laugh. I can tell you all the ways this is NOT you (like the massive arm muscles), but I do love that he got the necklace right. And the hairy arms. The beard needs a lot more grey. I didn’t know that Jonathan could draw.

    • Jon says:

      Hey Lu, I thought he captured the arms quite well. Jonathan is a brilliant artist. Ya never know what hidden talents people have. Hope you are enjoying Mongolia. Would love to visit. Jon

    There should be four stripes and not three. You carry a Leatherman, Captain?
