The Cabins

Rhonda looking out from the mosquito net.

The view from our cabin.

Lying on a board doesn't help my sleep any. I was okay with the bats, the darkness, the bugs, the loud jungle noises, but as I lay awake until the early morning hours, I missed my soft, warm bed at home. For just a little while, I felt like a spoiled American missing the comforts "civilized" life.

But then the sun finally unveiled the magnificence of the Amazon. In fact, the sunlight literally penetrated our little cabin through the bamboo slats and open air windows. We arose to see dense green vegetation surrounding us, filled with loud birds and butterflies. It was literally a paradise on Earth.

Thankfully, Rhonda was much happier in the morning. She also thought it was a paradise.

This place looks like paradise. I am so envious! You know hard beds are really great for your back!

Chinese hotels here in Beijing have the same type of board beds - and the Chinese have as much trouble sleeping in our cushy, comfy ones as we do in their rock hard ones.
