More about a stop at 100 year old Don Pedro's farm - request by Celebration [View all]
We went in a rubber boat down a shallow river full of crocodiles. I saw 8 photographed 7.
The tour, 45 bucks a person, was at least 3 1/2 hours with a guide who spoke perfect English.
The mid stop of the tour was a visit to Don Pedro's farm. They have batteries there for Don Pedro's little radio that get brought to them by our guide when he stops with tourists like ourselves.
They have no electricity.
He has taught one of Don Pedro's aging daughters how to work a battery operated cell phone, and he calls ahead. She then prepares tea and cheese bits and some other nibbles for the folks that dare the river and the stop.
Don Pedro does not speak English. I speak Spanish only haltingly, but I have the sentence of "May I please take your photograph, Senor" down pat.
His answer was "Do what you want, Senora, if it makes you happy". I am told he is up and about some every day.

Loud monkey. Called howler monkeys - supposedly next to the whale the second loudest animal in nature
