... the beauty of the region. It makes me wonder about the future of this area if/when the road paving occurs. The rough journey here encourages you to stay; an easy journey encourages departures. We rarely take the tine to stay in one place for ten days and really get to know an area. When we do , we feel more connected. This area only opened up to the world in the 1980s. We are so fortunate to visit it now, before it changes ...

... said yes and I thanked her. On the way out, I asked her where she was from and she replied Maine. She also went on to tell me that she lived here 40 years ago.

It was very spectacular. Anthony tried to fight the force of the water and swim under the falls but it was much too strong. We ...

A Princess Screams

... us up for the first of the monster lines (as well as my surprise introduction to DH screaming like a wounded howler monkey). As advertised the height and speed was freaky although a couple of lines had us shooting right through the jungle foliage (at least i'm assuming that's what that blurry green was all about). The braking system was much more advanced than our earlier experience- it involved a combination of wiggling the pulley, a rope/lasso mechanism used by the operator, and ...

Good cabin, but the bathroom was clogged
