This morning after breakfast we went to a farm to learn about crops and plant uses, I found it a bit boring really.

After lunch we went to a lake by the lodge and sat in a canoe that looked very close to the water.  Victor did the rowing and managed to row us into the trees again.

It was really hot and I was roasting in my life jacket.  We saw lots of birds but nothing else of interest to me.  Then when we got back to where we started, Victor gave out fishing rods with bits of meat on, I didn’t want one, I just wanted to get off the boat.  Eventually after about 3o minutes we finally got off the bloody boat.  I went and changed into cooler clothes and got a long cold drink.  I took some photos of the sun set.

There wasn’t a tour this evening which meant that the sisters and I could take full advantage of happy hour, and this is exactly what we did.  We were a bit tipsy by dinner and I laughed so much my sides hurt, it was a really fab evening.

Some shots of the view from my cabana and the outside. In the evening the staff would close the shutters, put the blinds down,  place hot water bottles in the bed, and leave a oil lamp alight by the bathroom door, as the electricity goes off at night.  The windows are mesh and so are the screens covering the balcony part of the cabana, so one can hear all the jungle noises when in the cabana, all part of this lovely experience.
