It rained HARD at the start of the journey, and we're all a little wet. Poncho or not. Steve and Jack kept the guide entertained ("Jesus Christ")...not that we would have remembered what kind of tree that was called.

Miss Bertha (aka Bigma) is not image stabilized. Would have been useful at 1/20 second.

These canals were man-made for....some reason which I forgot. They make great canals for gringo tourists that don't want to get dirty though.

The "other boat" we were in competition with. What the competition was, what the prize was...I have no clue. I'll single out Darrell in the orange, but only because he's the only one I remember.

At the touristy-end of the boat tour (not that the start wasn't touristy) we spent a lot of effort to go to the "other end" of the river (the ocean) than came back to this alligator/crocadile (yeah, I can't spell and I don't know the difference) that supposedly is always in this spot....but we couldn't agree if it was fake or not.

Nobody took the challenge to walk back and kick it though. Wow! Go Bertha! Bigma!
