Jevon eating maracuja (passion fruit) from the jungle.
Cali improvising – using a jambo fruit in place of sidewalk chalk. This is at the guest house.
Time for churrasco! on a Sunday afternoon with friends at the guest house
Pronunciation guide for English speakers – you say it like “shoe-ha-scoo”. 🙂
waiting with friends
Isaiah going to town with his first churrasco…thanks to Alfredo – o amigo bom!
everybody with full plates.
okay get ready for a switch; churrasco’s done and the next pics are from our first family hike in the jungle at PQQ.
this is a leaf-cutter ant nest.
those are the girls’ life jackets i am carrying, because we hiked to a swimming hole. the water was cold and clear and slow-moving; you could see the brown bottom and leaves and fish in it. but we didn’t get any pictures of that because we were busy playing with the girls and trying to keep Isaiah from squirming away; he kept trying to swim off on his own. and we couldn’t stay long; we had to make it a short swim because it took so long getting there and back. we were very sheepish when got back because people were looking for us already.
Cali’s yelling “LOOK! LOOK! LOOK!”
She saw a little bit of dark glimmering water through the vegetation. It was a corner of “the alligator pond” where Jevon speared an alligator when he was in seventh grade.
Swinging on a jungle vine.
crossing a swampy part on thin little fallen logs. the ground looks all innocent but if you step on it – “shwoop!” your foot goes under. i found out by experience.
that’s the end of the pictures. hopefully we’ll be able to take more of life as we know it now. 🙂
