Solo travel in a dangerous world. Stupid tax waiting to be paid...

Check out this story of a female Brit from the Miami Herald...
Emma Kelty received a dire warning as she kayaked solo down the Amazon River.

“I will have my boat stolen and I will be killed too,” Kelty wrote Sept. 10 on Facebook about an upcoming part of her journey. “Nice.”

It’s not clear from the post who issued the warning, but Kelty, determined to complete her journey down the Amazon to the Atlantic Ocean, continued downriver.
Story here. 

Wow.  This is a truly sad story.  I cannot wrap my head around the idea of a female (or even a group of women) traveling the world and heading into some of the scenic yet dangerous places on the planet.

It's stupid tax waiting to be paid.

I'm sorry this lady lost her life but where were her loved ones?  I know it's "old" fashioned but shouldn't some guy in her life had the common sense to tell her how dangerous and batshit crazy it is to even consider going down the Amazon river solo?
