“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

A couple of photos....

This is me with Juliette. I believe the two boys are sons of James who works here as a maintenance manager. Juliette goes to our school and they all guided us through the banana plants on their hillside opposite the lodge.

The second picture is me playing aeroplanes with Derek on the Southern hill behind the school. The children are so incredibly happy and playful, they love to take you by the hand and lead you through their homes and gardens showing you where each animal sleeps and where they do their washing etc.
