    ... you could actually buy a house for $37,000 there. Adam, Marcus, Vanessa, and I decided we are moving there. We were about 2000 feet up, and we could see the ocean. Words can't describe the beauty of all of this! It was just spectacular! We zip lined after this, and it was great! There were 9 cables for zip lining, 2 repel stations, 2 crazy rope bridges, and a Tarzan swing. It was awesome! My group of 14 was crazy. The tour ...

    The people are most gracious and happy to see us. It is hard to imagine that many children actually have to quit school to work on pineapple or other agricultural farming to help provide for their families.

Now how do you go about waking up a load of people at 3.30am who are all cosy and fast asleep in their tent? Well, it's obvious isn’t it – you get (the boss) Ross into one of the landrovers and he drives up and down past the venturers tents very slowly with the horn going continuously! Trust me, after ...
