... people sitting on the fencing around the ring. We stood at the edge of the ring behind the fencing. It was definitely something to see. After watching a few rounds we headed back to the main area to eat and have a few beers at the beer garden.

After visiting several contacts that Saul and Paige would be working with, we were set to travel deeper in to BriBri territory. I was along for the ride.
