    ... we saw Jesu Cristo lizards. Bright yellow green they are so named because they scurry across the surface of the river! None are yet to be known to cure the crippled, feed the masses with a few loaves and fishes or turn water into wine. Evolution takes time.

    The odyssey is almost concluded. Nov 4 we go back to San Jose ( a 2 1/2 hour trip) to spend the night before a very early flight back home. One more short posting when I get back.

    ... Once they came in, drove to the landing, and unloaded all the tubes they spotted a strawberry frog. Apparently if you touched the frog you would die. Then they told us what to do and it seemed pretty simple. Hold on, try not to tip over, paddle if needed. Once we got on the river I was happy… until I hit the first rock. Then I was not so happy. The rapids were very fun, but also unpredictable. It would try to turn your tube over at every chance it had. But it was mostly ...

    ... to Stella's Cafe, nope not the Winnipeg one but this one was just as great! I loved that I could make my own sandwich. They even put fruit out for the birds so we could watch them. This is also where Paul learnt about the Kane trade and couldn't think about anything else lol. After a long lunch we went to the bat jungle, where we learnt a lot about bats and got to ...

    Where Are The Stars?

    A travel blog entry by pkgregoire on Feb 07, 2015

    ... It was great, plus awesome, yet scary I'm told, waterslides. I don't do waterslide but Paul did 3/4 of them. It gets dark around 6pm so for most of the time we were looking up into the night sky. I always look for the big/small dipper but there were no stars! Due to the climate, seeing stars in the sky isn't a common occurrence I'm told.
