Rapunzelina,

01 - 21.15 - https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/ngm04_01_128kb.mp3
02 - 18.57 - https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/ngm04_02_128kb.mp3

NatGeo was sure a strong advocate of the Nicaraguan canal . . . I read an article on the survey of the route from a previous volume, and here it is mentioned and pushed again.

Thanks Dave - I thought I had read something about it recently, but wasn't sure. That only took 122 years!

Here is my last section.
14 - 38.02 - https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/ngm04_14_128kb.mp3

In the course of recording this section, I hit a mental block and got stuck for several minutes, unable to say meteorology, meteorologist or meteorlogically in any way shape or form. It was terrifying, :shock:. Once the log jam broke, by repeating to myself "Tom Skilling is a meterologist" over and over again, I was then on tinder hooks the rest of the section, fearing that when one of those words came up again, I would once again get stuck, unable to even sound out the syllables. I now have a new "hardest to pronounce" family of words and from this point on will welcome "isthmus" as child's play compared to references to the science of weather!

Hi there! Could I claim sections 15 and 16? (I'll figure out some way to make audible sense of the table at the end of the latter.)
