Today was going to be exciting. We went hiking, without a car, for two days and we would sleep under a rock near a waterfall... Two english girls came along and the guides were two afro-rasta men and a rasta girl... Nice!
The very first mountain we had to walk was immediately the hardest one. Freaking steep hills what ment resting and drinking every 5 - 10 minutes for 1,5 hour. But, we made it and only that was allready rewarding. We went to see a waterfall and had lunch there. After lunch we spotted this rat-snake.
In the afternoon we went to a second waterfall, this time a broad one, and set up camp there. Camp would mean, rolled out our mats and sleeping bags... We swam around played some simple games like, what do you see in that cloud and the dilemma game. But it was fun. The rasta-girl made a 6 person dinner on a selfmade fire including; rice, pancaces, stoganoff, vegetables and cous-cous. Amazing.
As it became dark and cold after 19 o´clock we closed our eyes, we´d wake up at 6 am. as the sun would rise above the mountain. Nice view from under the rock, a red/yellow sky had a big contrast to the mountain in font of us. We packed our stuff and went to see the third and last waterfall. This time we had to climb vertical mountainwalls, crouch through little gaps and swim to actually get to the waterfall. We saw some amazing birds and I was allmost picked by a black wasp. If it did pick me, i´d be having a fever within an hour, so I was lucky.
This waterfall was AMAZING! It was a half round single drop waterfall of about a hundred meters high. And we got to swim under it! We went back, found some snake skin, had lunch and finally got back to town.
In the night there was a big party since the owner of the hostel celebrated her birthday. We drunk wine and coke (strangest combination, especially when it is with Brazilian wine), caprinha´s and beers. At 5 o´clock I finally found my bed.
