Starting point of the whitewater rafting tours through the Grand Canyon. We desperately wanted to do this, however, when I tried to book 1980 there was a waiting list of over one year. And since we never knew how long we would stay in the US (I had 3 months notice), there were simply to many unknowns. In the end, we should have done it anyway, because we stayed much longer than expected, but in hindsight you are always smarter :-) Hier gehen die "Whitewater Rafting Tours" durch den Grand Canyon ab. Wir wollten das damals unbedingt machen, aber leider gab es eine Warteliste von über einem Jahr. Da wir nicht wussten, wie lange wir in den USA bleiben würden (ich hatte damals drei Monate Abruf für die Rückkehr nach D), war das einfach zu unsicher. Letzendlich hätten wir es doch machen können, denn wir blieben viel länger als geplant. Aber hinterher ist man immer schlauer :-)
