Myyy did we have some experiences before we left the jungle. I'll start with the morning we got up and went down to the river to find a tour guide and a boat that would take us through the disgusting, piranha infested waters to a wild life place where we could hold and play with animals! Sounded fun!
But first we headed to the wild life place!
Our boat pulled up to our destination and we got out and clicked up some rickety, steep, very slippery steps where we were met by monkeys! The first one immediately took to Paul and climbed right up him! They were all pretty into him actually. For some reason Paul attracts animals. It's pretty funny!
It's true. Monkeys LOVE to steal! One of them grabbed my dad's reading glasses out of his pocket. Another one tried to pull my mom's skirt, and one swung down and pulled Paul's shirt pocket open to peek inside and see if there was anything inside that it's little heart desired.
It was raining again when we got of the boat and headed down this path. I was wearing flip flops and got my feet extremely wet and muddy. I saw a big hut type structure with another thatch roof ahead and headed for it since that's where everyone was going. Looked like a nice place to get out of the rain!
Apparently good ol' Mr. Tour guide had lied to us, because as soon as we saw the tribal people we immediately turned around and got outta there! I think the tour guide got the point that we weren't too happy with him after Bro. Nix let him have it! (In a Christian sort of way, or course. Hehe)
(I almost wiped out. Thankfully I didn't plunge to my doom.)
