... and a good square meal waiting to be devoured--rice, jungle veggies, little fried whole fish, and of course more frogs.
Crunchy, scrumptious, frogs!
While packing up our campsite along the pretty little creek, we heard some commotion from the direction of the research station.
Our guide had caught a little water snake. The guides loved the fact that Britton was so totally into the wildlife and insects. So they were always trying to find things to point out and show us.
We found some time to climb a really sweet tree. We had to climb it basically just because it was there...and needed to be climbed.
And beneath that tree was a vine. So of course, we had to swing on it.
Then Britton had the chance to feed that deep inner instinct, that fire-making desire that most boys have to suppress. In the jungle it's very, very difficult to make fire, so it's a great place for a boy to practice.
Just before leaving, our guide caught Britton a sweet lizard. We brought it home, where it now lives in Britton's terrarium. Everyday Britton catches a bunch of grasshoppers to feed him. What's really cool is that he can change color to match whatever he's on at the time.
Well, that's it. Hope you enjoyed hearing about our adventure. Wish you could have come along.
