Swimming with piranhas is an OPTIONAL activity?

A travel blog entry by russellgibson

We had a quite an early start today, but this was OK. When there is no electricity, it always seems later than it actually is. We went to bed early and slept really well. In the jungle it is actually quite noisy, insects, nocturnal animals, bats, vermin making their calls and scurrying around. This noise is quite peaceful and Alison said she tried …
