It is spectacular, Frank, and the blokes do play an important role here.

[How did you drag yourself away from this place?]
Frank L Croston.: It is, and they do, Ray. It was already windy and cold, then it got dark smile

Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Martine, its also known as chocolate falls.
OMG, Frank. That definitely gives scale!
Frank L Croston.: I almost didn't see them, Ginnie, but I think they make the shot.

WOW, this is very impressive, Frank. Those people really give scale. I bet the sound was impressive too and make you realize how tiny you are.
Frank L Croston.: Very noisy, Astrid, it puts you in your place indeed.Thanks.

I am trying to imagine the amount of sediment being thrown down river.
Frank L Croston.: There certainly must be a lot, Andrew.
The world's largest chocolate fountain.

Scale is indeed given in this splendid picture
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Bill, I wouldn't like to taste it...

I though of a cascade, then saw the people down there. Very impressive and very unusual colour.
Frank L Croston.: Its the colour of the soil above the falls that it collects when in full flow, Louis.
Like most otheres I didn't notice the people at first, these falls must be enormous.
Frank L Croston.: Huge, Brian.
I still cannot believe this exists. I saw it first from you or E before. Unreal! The rock is spectacular too.
Frank L Croston.: I can assure you it does, Mary, though what its like at the moment I don't know its been so dry.
Big falls Frank, will explain my new toys when I see you.
Frank L Croston.: Huge, Michael. Ok, I'll hang on. smile

Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ayush.
I just noticed the tiny people at the bottom right...
Frank L Croston.: I was pleased they were there, Larry.
