I don't remember breathing very often, I was so concentrated on looking down. The flippers were awkward. I always tried to glide on top of the water surface to avoid breaking any coral. It would take 50 years to make a piece of coral about the size of a twenty five cent piece. If tourists continue to visit this area, the second largest coral reef in the world, will it begin to crumble like the Great Barrier Reef?
The ride out to Cayos Cochinos was very bumpy but fun
Yesterday evening I was hit hard and sudden with some tropical fever. I had aches in every bones like arthritis, fever, chills, puking, diarrhea... the works! Luckily this was after we'd gone zipping over jungle canopies on cables. Wow, what a rush that was! Of course lots of precautions were taking by the Sambo Creek crew and I felt safe even though my heart was pounding! It's fun to be brave.
I did yoga this evening in the light of the full moon on our balcony. I thought of India. The yoga was well needed after illness and exerting muscles on our adventure excursions. This has been a very short and sweet week vacation.
