Hi --

Here is Section 22, the end of the description of Manners and Customs.

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/endeavourjournal_22_banks_128kb.mp3
38 min 11.2 sec, 89.0 dB

I hope it's OK; I had to do quite a bit of editing (tedious). Please let me know if anything needs to be repaired.

Thanks for listening.

22 PL OK!

Your efforts were successful. :clap: The first part seemed a hard read.

Hi Again --

Another installment of Banks.

Section 23
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/endeavourjournal_23_banks_128kb.mp3
12 min 2 sec, 88.8 dB

The days go by at sea. Weather, birds, vermin, bad food (but as with tramping/backpacking/bushwalking, bad food somehow seems better in the outdoors).

Thanks for listening.

23 PL OK.

Sounds like the past few months (but without the bad food and the vermin were cute bunny rabbits).

Hi --

Section 24 has been uploaded. Not the best -- I had to re-record a few bits and they sound quite different in spite of my efforts. I am not very good at modulating my voice (I think tembre the word?) over short segments to match the previous recording when I was in mid-flow. The alternative was to leave in some big clicks that I couldn't manage to fix. Please let me know what you think - I could try again with the voice if it is too distracting.

31:51.6, 89.5 dB

I found this section more interesting than most -- but I would since it includes when they land in NZ. At one point, Banks describes one of the days as the worst day of his life.

Thanks for listening.

Gail

PS. Anne - I hope that you aren't too affected by the upswing in cases in Melbourne. Keep healthy, both of you.

It's all a bit scary but the family is still all OK. It was a bit sad having only one of my twins here for their birthday - they were born on the 4th July. One lives in South Australia and she's always come over with her children for the school holidays but anyone crossing the border has to spend 14 days in isolation. But I had my other one - just in time, she won't be able to visit again for 6 weeks now, Still we are all still healthy and we could video chat - I look at some countries death tolls and start thinking positively.
