Amazingly Paul & I are the only two people on our trip.  The company still runs then even with 2.  Not that we´re complaining a personal guided 3 day trip into the rainforest...!!!! not bad.  Since our Spanglish is still not fantastic we have a translater (Rita) who is a volunteer at the lodge to help us.  Very confusing for her as she is Swiss German!!!

We take a boat to the lodge, meet up with the translater and our guide and set off immediatly to the communidad of San Miguel.  Our guide is also El Presidente of the village and drops hints about donations to the school.........

we eat several different tropical fruits, many of which even tesco do not stock at home !!!!   We have a go at pressing sugar canes in a manual press built by the villagers, the juice from it is so wonderfully sweet we get a severe head rush!!!!

Again lots of pics to follow soon and a more detailed description.
