Our next stop was the only Tropical Rain forest in the US.
Me, observing the Canopy. I remember 6th grade science.
Also a word on my hat. We bought it on the second day in Old San Juan after I had sun stroke (not really). It cost $18 after tax. It was one of the cheaper hats in the store. I wore it to the beach and it fell in the water. Then totally lost it’s shape.
You can see down to the ocean from the top of the visitors center.
We did some learning about the Rainforest.
Then we made a quick stop in the gift shop. I tried to buy this PR parrot. Karl wouldn’t let me. It was $20. What is this, Disneyland??
We learned about the Ko-Kee. The little frogs that sing ko kee! They are every where. It was here I made the realization that the “bird” I thought was keeping me up all night for the past couple of nights was actually a tiny little frog.
There was tagging everywhere we went. This tower was no exception. Carved into the fort in old town, on bathroom walls and all the way out here. People needed to write their names.
Then walking down.
The little gift shop at the bottom of the tower.
El Banjo Grande.
Also, we found out there was a rabid mongoose, on the loose!
We had no way of knowing how nuts people are here about their elections! This was our first taste of what was to come. People ringing bells and yelling. Honking horns (which is a big deal and you should never do except in this situation) waving flags.
