Mandatory Fun Time
|We drove through the mountains for a couple hours to reach a port city |
which lies on a large river which meets up with the Amazon.
|This was our first big outing in Burrito Gris (our van).|
She struggled a bit, but managed to make it with God's help.
|We stopped along the way to give everyone, |
including Burrito Gris, a much needed break.
|When we arrived in town we headed for the Central Plaza.|
|It didn't take us long to find the more interesting parts of town.|
Here is the waterfront where the locals bring their wares in and out of town for sale.
|We hiked for over an hour to get to the swimming hole |
beneath a beautiful waterfall in the jungle.
|Jack and Michael had a lot of fun|
exploring the jungle.
|When we arrived at the waterfall we swam in the refreshing natural pool.|
|Here's a picture of our crew having lunch by the waterfall: Father Leo,the Schmidt family, |
Andy, Russ and Miguel (our single guys), Jack and Michael.
