The 3 day Jungle Trek
24.01.2012 25 °F
Our last day here in the jungle and we were suppose to get up early to see the sunrise but due to the cloudy weather this was impossible but we were welcomed with yet another delicious breakfast and we were off to do a bit of Piranha fishing. The fishing turned out to be a miss as the tides were really high but we took advantage for another long lazy boat ride around the swamps where I saw squirrel monkeys and more toucans by the time I knew it we were back at the lodge for an early lunch, quickly but sadly packed our bags and we were off to Santa Rosa to take our 3hrs ride back to Rurrenbenque. The sun was out full beam a slight breeze and we were cruising in and out of bushes and all sorts what still gets me is how on earth can someone remember which turning to take when you are only surrounded by trees/bushes and loads of water and no road/river signs???? Sadly we had left 2hrs back to Santa Rosa on the boat, 3hrs in a 4x4 back to Rurrenbenque where we were greeted by ice cold coke – just perfect! The sun was HOT n beaming down strongly we were told by out tour operators that no buses will leave to go back to La Paz for that evening we checked either way and guess what…..they were wrong! We had left that evening at 11pm and arrived in La Paz the next day at 15pm!
