    ... felt like needles, and then the lightning began. The first clap of thunder unsettled us, but we drove onward. I measured the second clap of thunder from the time the lightning flashed, and it was about 2 seconds. At the point where we were to turn off-road, I was shouting to Sam (it was very loud) that we should turn back, all the while the guide is trying to show me how to put the ATV in 4WD. I ignored him and was trying to get Sam's attention when a third lightning bolt ...

    ... kind, so we were able to actually hold one of them. Well, Mother declined that opportunity, but she otherwise was pretty fascinated by the entire 2-hour walk. Craig asked about the fer-de-lance tour and Jason said none tonight but mentioned that a few days earlier they had run across two of them mating on the path on which we were standing.

    While the experience of a night tour was enjoyable, I'm not sure that we'd do it again, unless it was in a more tropical part of Costa Rica, where the creatures of the night are far more disgusting and exotic. It just isn't quite the same as a day tour in terms of excitement, and the volume of creatures spotted. Perhaps if we had actually spotted a scorpion, like the British dude thought he did! ...

    ... only let one person on at a time so 1) you don't have time to think and 2) you can't see how scary it is. Step off a bungee platform and scream till it's over seems to be the protocol. Sarah went first, she was told to clip on to a security rope and walk to the end of the bridge and there are two guides waiting with an evil smile on their faces, a safety gate is in front and while the guides are explaining that all you need to step forward they're tightening your rope so you ...
