The last message iI left we were staying in Parati at the lovely hostel. That night we had a bbq and were sitting round a fire. Later one of the guys asked me if I had anything in my pockets, which I replied no to so later he picked me up, still on my chair, and threw me in the sea, fully dressed!!! I was holding onto him so much that he had to come in too, I wasn´t impressed because we had to be up early the next day for a 18 hr drive on the first day and 6 the next and I had used someone´s straightners that night and had reasonably straight hair, but it wasn´t when I got out of the water!
The drive the next day was long, we were meant to set up for camping that night, but it was too dark so we stayed in an amazing hotel. It was like a 4* hotel and it was so nice to have a shower and a nice bed. Although I was in a room with a girl called Philippa, Charlie and James (who we all called Billy) and so we were up until quite late talking.
When we are on the bus or camping, we have to take turns in cooking and cleaning up. I am in a group with Kath, Rick, Billy and Nick and Billy is a good cook so it´s good.
the next day we arrived at the Pantanel where we were to do swamp walking, horse riding and sleeping in hammocks. My problem was on the second day, I tried showing off and hanging upside down from a bar, but my legs slipped and I landed on concrete and hurt my back. Therefore I couldn´t do the horse riding, which I was really annoyed at coz I wanted to do that. Sleeping in the hammocks was fun though.
We left from the Pantanel earlyish to set off for Bonito and some of the roads were really bumpy and my back was killing me, we stopped on the side of the road for lunch and then carried on. Philippa was lyingon the seats and when we went over a big bump she cut herself and had to have 5 stitches put in.
We arrived in Bonito and went on the internet for half an hr and then went to set up camp. The tents get really hot when you wake up because the weather is amazing atm, I´m working on my tan atm. We went snorkelling yesterday and that was amazing, we didn´t see tropical fish but we saw some massive ones.
Today we hitchhiked into town, we walked for about half an hr in the heat and then managed to get a lift. I forgot to bring my photos with me to put on the computer, but I haven´t really been taking that many because everyone else is and I will just steal them, I mean borrow, from facebook.
Thats all the goss for now, thanks people who have sent me e-mails and messages, it´s lovely to hear from everyone. Thanks mum and dad for your e-mails too, the way you tell me things it´s as if i´m actually there with you. I want to keep up with all that´s happening at home.
Love to everyone
