So we just had to tell you of our amazing day today. But first I need to explain this dog that is with Jenna the dog followed us all over the town so we gave it food (it was hungry.) The thing would not leave us alone the owner of the hotel would throw rocks at it at night to get it away (not our decision) and it would be on the door step in the morning. Any how we went to the Nauyaca waterfall to day it was amazing it is about 150 ft. it was huge. We all got on horses with 2 other people and a guide and went riding for about 2 hours. It was Jennas first time outside a pasture and Tracys first time ever touching a horse. They both did well and found a good seat in the saddle although Jenna had a ruff time because she decided to play with some hornets and they stung her twice, once in the neck and in the arm and the guide once. Then the guide kind of took to her and kept smacking the back of Jennas horse and Jenna would screem the whole time the horse was running. Let me tell you what though I would not have taken many horses from the states up some of the hills we were on as well as in the mud it was slippery. We had a contest to see who could swim into the waterfall and I was the only one it was tuff. Then some other tours came and this Tico (a local Costa rican) jumped off a rock and swam under the water to the rocks and then climbed up with a rope and tyed it off somewhere and did a sweet back flip off. we could not get up the rope because they said that it was for there tour. love you all. we are headed to panama tomorrow!!!
