Trek Day 3

This morning when we got up we saw this man lashing together these bamboo rafts - we weren't exactly sure how we were going to head down the river on them.....
Standing up apparently........ I got the steering spot.... a little stressful
The river was low, so it was pretty chill but there were some spots that were a little rough, which was fun.


When we were done we hiked back up to where the truck was picking us up while the other guys took apart the rafts - they are single use apparently.
Doh broke open a really yummy watermelon.
Then the ride got crazy - we got back in the truck and headed down the side of this crazy mountain on a dirt road - Mel was not too jazzed about the cliff - hence the face.
We drove down to this sweet waterfall where we could swim.
The water was super cold but really refreshing.

The ride back was all on paved road so it was pretty relaxing.
When we got back into town we heard that there had been a ton of rain down south where we were headed so we hung out at the hostel and tried to figure out what to do and just chilled out for a bit. It was nice to just relax. In the end we talked to some other tourists and they said the rain had passes so we headed that night to the airport to head to the islands!
