We left from the bank and paddled down river. We started
gaining speed when we got to the rapids. We hit a submerged rock and fell out.
As we jumped in the boat we regained speed, al of use where wet and cold but we

Just before we got to the end the instructor call water fall
so we paddled harder, the drop came fast and before we know it we lunged out ...
... to drive on except for the roadworks, which are everywhere. They have the longest waits ever as they rip up quite a few miles of road at a time.

Dinner at a restaurant called The Bridge. This is because it IS a bridge. It is also about one minute walk from our hotel. Service was mediocre, but food was quite good. I'd recommend it--but not as highly as the fish tacos at Creekside Cabins!
