Studying other cultures isn’t the same as being immersed in them.
Studying anything can’t compare to experiencing it.

some steps up to the cabanas
cave tour is now complete
a view from the hut

Rio Claro (clear river) and some parts walkable
maybe I should have stayed with tubing
I read about Rio Claro before the trip. It sounded like a great weekend adventure to sleep in an open “hut” above the river and go for a hike. Not all the guide said was translated or I would have saved my young friends from having me as an anchor on the two hour hike up to the caves. We would shine our flashlight in the darkness and come to a water pool in the caves….jump in and climb out. I don’t recall how many pools until light could be seen at the end of the tunnel. Once down the rope ladder and across the rushing river and I knew I had just completed something I never would have done……
Many biblical analogies I could share but let’s just say knowing God’s Word and what faith means is not the same as living it out. If WE have it all planned out – is it God’s plan? He usually translates as needed.
