So yesterday, we decided we’d go to the “ Agua Caliente” which is essentially a hot springs just below a waterfall with some caves and stuff. The only question was our means of getting there.
Our boat has been lifted out of the water (as I’m sure you’ve read) and so we’re staying in a very socially empty area filled with boats. Although, we have made friends of some of the only other people here. There is an 11 year old boy named Brendan, whom Alexander and I have been hanging out with lately, and a 9 year old girl named Beth, who Katie has befriended.

|I was in this position for an hour total. There and back. Notice the arms of the people hanging on outside the bus. There were people on the roof, too.|
|This seems safe. Although it is hard to make a seatbelt work out there.|
|Katie went rock climbing!|
|Get out of the way! I think the crazy gringos might jump!|
|Katie flings herself off of a waterfall in style!|
|Probably not the best time to start wondering if the water under me is deep enough.|
|Inside the caves. I half expected Gollum to sneak up behind me.|
|Credit for the cave and jumping pictures goes to Alexander.|
Eventually we needed to go back, and so we packed up and got picked up in a shuttle bus. The ride home was just as bad as coming there, needless to say, It was unfathomably cramped.
