Report of 28th June
Report by Thecla and Benno
Dirk en Trudy takes a day for rest while we go out for a hike on 6 o’clock in the morning. After an quarter of an hour the rains starts already so we can really say that we walk through the rainforest. The raining looked like a start of the coming of the tarantulas. Three of that hand big ones, with hairy legs cross the road within 100 metres. Our attention is not any more for the butterflies, birds or plants, but mainly for the ground. After the tree tarantulas we met another 20 monsters on our way. Every step we walked further into the rainforest we saw more animals. Suddenly we see some howling monkeys above us with they’re frightening screams. We see also an owl, an woodpecker and we here hear several pairs of macaws which we don’t see at all. Totally we walk for six hours long. After the walk Benno makes with Dirk a short ride with the T ford, which gave as some confidence.
David and Carlos came in the evening to say goodbye. Dirk and Trudy prepared two pictures on a postcard for them. Benno changes cigars with David who gets some Compean cigars. Benno got two special cigars from Havana from him in leather coverage.
What a lovely people!
