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.
