Life in the Jungle

COSTA RICA | Tuesday, 28 October 2008 | Views [392]

A typical day in the jungle is to wake up at sunrise, some time between 5 and 5:30AM. Have breakfast at the terrace that looks over the jungle. Enjoy the morning calm with bird chirping and a book. We would work between 8:30-ish and Noon-ish. By noon, the sun would be beaming and I would be dripping with my own sweat, poison (inset repellent,) and sun block. It would be time to get out of the stanky work clothes and clean myself up. I’d have lunch or descend down the mountain into town for the market. Whenever I do head into town, I know I have to do it quickly, because invariably, it would rain in the afternoon. (I would hate to get caught in the rain again, because there is so much moisture in the air that clothes hardly ever dry.) I’d read until dinner or until time to prepare dinner. We would have dinner around 6-ish, right about when the sun sets. Clean up. Bedtime 9-ish. I dig a life that revolves around the sun.
