We are having lots of fun today - the boys rented motorbikes for eight dollars a day and are having fun driving the girls around. I rode with the pastor this morning because I figured he would have a little more experience driving around here. It was a blast. The smile on Stan's face is worth it all. He has certainly earned it.
We went back to the Eco Resort because Derek wanted to swim in the Amazon and this is the closest we could get to it. I got some great pics of the parrots this time - they put one on my arm and he walked up and started nibbling on my ear and then tried to steal my glasses! Absolutely beautiful. One of the young guys took me around and showed me the different animals they had there. The toucans were beautiful.
I got them to drop me off at the hotel because it is getting too hot out there for me now. I may go down to the pool in a bit. The pastor and his wife are supposed to be coming to dinner with us tonight. She is a lovely lady.
We went down and had our pictures taken at the "Genesis". The guys gave some of their tools to one of the men working on the boat next to us. He almost cried when we said goodbye. Gustavo joined us for our prayer time last night and when we finished he said "Look at you, each of you are glowing. There is aura of light around each one of you.". That is the highest compliment anyone could pay me.
We are on the homestretch now, and I am truly amazed at how fast the time has gone. It has been san absolutely incredible experience, and what a wonderful way to end off.
(Once home I'll be sharing some of my own pictures from this adventure and sharing more of the stories surrounding them, so stay tuned :-)
