Th time we took a recess in takin things 4 granted

A travel blog entry by binni


... the bottom of our socks would be rendered black after a short time of wearing them. I swept once and emptied a full dustpan of dirt and tiny twigs. Full. These contradictions, (of which I am convinced we all posess, myself most certainly included) were many and varied and made it difficult to work out where we stood at times and we had to work hard at guessing his way of doing things, so as to avoid a stern reprimand, sometimes these reprimands were ...

... cut down for agriculture or replaced with imported foreign species used for forestry. This area is therefore a rarity. Felipe takes us for a walk for an hour or so. It is dense like a tropical rainforest and we squeeze along a tiny path made through the vegetation. A lovely experience.

... br> Day 3:
Less than five hours of sleep later, I was crawling out of bed in a twelve-person dorm room, and sneaking out into the dawn to join my tour group. As far as I could tell, there were about 20 of us in the group, including one other person from the Pachamama group, with several guides.
