Rock View was a wonderful experience. The hospitality was wonderful -- we felt very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed the dinner conversation with the host and other guests. The rooms were comfortable, the grounds were fun to explore, and we thought the activities were interesting. I would definitely return to this lodge.

I don't think she thought I was funny; yet another dumb bunny. I am sure it annoys these birding dorks and dorkettes that Mike and I are so ho hum about the birding.

The weather is foul in Georgetown. It is raining, overcast and windy. Dunno if that is a good or bad omen. Brekkie was much smoother today. The fresh fruit juice was ...
We had another early morning: breakfast at 6am, then we packed up and climbed into the truck for the drive to Atta Rainforest Lodge. The road we took is main link to Brazil, and, as our guides pointed out, it is not a good road. While I've been on worse, it is all red dirt, full of huge pot holes, rutted, and washboardy. We hoped to see a jaguar, as they like to walk on the road in the early morning after a rain – our current conditions – but no kitty, not even a paw ...
... of trees. Suddenly, we moved from the grasslands to the jungle. Just like entering Mirkwood.
The hike in the rainforest was very interesting. We learned about a lot of different plants, including a vine that used to be used for fishing. The vine would be cut and the juice distributed into a pond by whipping the cut vine against the water. The fish would get "drunk" and float to the surface, still alive, making them easy to catch. The practice is now illegal, ...
