Today we went to the jungle and helped the Bri Bri (the name of the indigenous tribe) who have been living here in the deep jungle for many years. When we arrived, we were truly impressed by the animals, flowers and plants here. You can see the coco-trees with their big fruits/nuts on them. Also, you can see other trees or plants that grow fruits we can buy in Germany, for example: Coconuts, star-fruits and bananas.

The Bri Bri are used to live in the jungle, but for us it’s completely new. We normally don’t have problems with heat, ticks and other poisonous animals. The days here are very hot, dry and exhausting. However, it also brings good things, for example: Stunning sunrises and sunsets and the river is warm enough to go swimming.

Clearing paths and river swimming

The day in general was very nice because we did some things for the Bri Bri. For example, we cleared a path from up here down to the water and put some sand on it, which we got from the other side of the river. After we finished we went back to the lodge and ate lunch.

Then our teachers told us that we are going to swim in the river, which everyone enjoyed because there was a rope hanging from a tree.
