... celebration with the entire audience dancing and clapping along (might I add that having the audience clap along to the music is a dangerous thought...I find in Canada at least, we have almost no rhythm and we end up changing the beat of the song!

After this, we retreated back to ground level and received a demonstration of how to use a blow dart. This is the locals only legal way to hunt monkeys and other wildlife. We were all given the chance to try our blow-dart skills against a hanging wooden monkey target. I'm proud to say that I managed to hit the monkey. Let's just say that K and Anna gave it a good try.
