In der Nacht hat es fast ununterbrochen geregnet (besser: geschüttet). Die Geräuschkulisse unter einem Wellblechdach ist beeindruckend ;-))).

Auf dem Weg dorthin nehmen wir unsere …

Canopy (zip line) tour and Tabacon hot springs

... told Brian to make sure he used the handles to brake. They told me not to worry about braking and just make sure I tucked my knees so I would make it to the other side each time. I went fast enough and made it to the platform each time. Hurrah for that!

Although the lines with the view of the lake and volcano were great, the best one was the one where you went through the rainforest canopy.


The Fortunate

A travel blog entry by deni367
