(One always thinks that perhaps these cops will just try to find something wrong!) Well, it was our lucky day..... ! The guy ...
So less flower power and more scarey (thats a lie) animal stuff. We spent several days in the Panatanal which is the largest wetlands in the world and I can safely say it wasn't very wet. They normally have three seasons, dry, wet and flood but, last year it didn't flood and so they are a bit short of water as you will see in the pictures with all the caymans huddled in one little pond of water. A cayman incidentally is a kind of crocodile ...
