Report 25 June

Report of 25th June
Report by Thecla and Benno

We intend to go on 6 o clock in the morning for a walk through the rainforest. But when we awake it was still dark. About a half hour later it was light enough but cloudy.

The noises are all around us and I feel my heat beating if we enter with our first steps in virginious wood. We get welcomed  by colorous birds while lizards run shy away.

We see humming birds, many butterflies and big great spiders of 8 cm. Pace for pace we walk careful further in the wood, we won’t disturb “the holiness of the surrounding”. The magic of the wood let us whisper.  We see at the top of the jungle enormous wood giants and from a distance we hear the impressive sounds of howling monkeys. Robbery birds look up and fly slightly away.  How nice

If we cross a little river, we see fishes and hear whistling frogs which make the sounds of the wood more impressive. A few moments later, just when Dirk’s is asking about the possibility to see here snakes, we see a beautiful coloured coral-snake on our path.
We get quiet about the naturalness, so near by Guayaquil and that we may enjoy it together.

After the beautiful hike we stayed on the shade of the campsite and we are waiting to the things which will come. Today we had to do some shopping and we experienced a very abandoned road which we normally don’t see. But it seems that Ecuador had to play the next game in the world championship. A shame that they play ended 0-0, so they may not play further.
