Embera Tribe


First we went in a dug out canoe. I was amazed at how big it was. It was made out of a big sharp tree. There were logs in the river and they looked like crocodiles. The water looked murky.

We climbed out of the canoe and walked then swam to a waterfall. It was icy cold like my favourite ice-cream. We clung to the rocks as the current was so strong. Then we got back into the canoe and we rode to the village. They welcomed us with music. 

We went to a hut for lunch. The hut was on stilts 6 feet in the air so the snakes couldn't climb up. The floors were made of long strips of wood. First we had some pineapples bananas and oranges. They were wrapped in a banana leaf. They put palm leaves on top. Finally they did a dance and mummy joined in.
