... and survival was a 10. At UGA it was 5-5. Here it is comfort 10 survival 1. Lol. However we are going to do the hardest hike of the entire trip. It is a 6 hour hike straight up an extinct volcano called Cerro Chato! This will test each and everyone of us. 2 hours of this hike will be straight up. But the reward is we will be able to swim in the crater of a volcano. Truly awesome. I will try and post a blog tomorrow. Until then Pura ...

The ants, being blind and navigating by smell, are unaware of the sloth's presence, allowing the animal to live in peace (and in ...
