    ... the night before hangs in the air. There is no breeze but thankfully there is cloud cover so the temperature is bearable. The trail is muddy and steep. Our guide checks the trees we need to use to get over difficult areas in the trail and occasionally stops to point out wildlife. "It's a worm. It's poisonous, don't touch it," he says during one stop. "A poisonous worm?" Jamie and I ask the question to each other. We get up close. "Also known as ...

We were asked if ...

    ... of really heavy bursts of rain, accompanied by loud thunder but it just seemed fine to stay in the river, we were already wet but warm.

    The rain storms continued for the rest of the afternoon and evening so we decided not to venture too far and just to have take away pizza for dinner. We did treat ourselves for a bottle wine though - after all we had saved considerable sum of money by going to the free hot springs.
