... Our adrenaline was surging as we followed suite barefoot along steep rock cliffs (one wrong step and we would have been fish food 200m below) but our bravery was rewarded. The bottom of the waterfall brought not only a relief from the heights, but also a fresh water pool of water to swim and relax by. What an amazing view!

Everyone else was dressed in blankets, fleeces and even balaclaves. We had some aladdin pants and cotton shirts which we would wear layered until we could hardly bend ...

... trees, cocoa actually grows inside of a shell that looks like a football. Cashews grow on top of a yellow crab apple and if you squeeze the crab apple it actually has acidic juice in it that will burn your hand (Aman's Dad found out the hard way!).
