"Being sad is prohibited" lol. I don't have a problem with that. The fact that i'm always happy throws alot of people in peru for a loop. I can't tell you how many people have asked me why i'm always smiling. Personally, i can't imagine how utterly terrible it would be to not smile all the time. David, being the rebel that he is, just had to be sad. jaja.
Anyway... on to my day. I had a really rough time making a decision about this trip. To go or not to go... that was the question. On the up side... white water rafting. :) How totally awesome would that be? On the down side... back surgery... what would be the consequences of that sort of stress. And down side number two: the boy was visiting me in Lima this week and Lunahuana would mean an entire day out of the city. I chose to go... obviously.
And it was incredible! We had soo much fun! The three words of the day were definitely "alto, adelante, y atras" Although none of us had any idea what we were doing, we definitely had a blast! And we almost flipped our boat which was totally awesome. :) The guide asked us if we wanted to have some fun, and of course we said yes.... so he took us through the worst section of the river... It was fun, yes, but we almost died in the process. lol.
Towards the end, he asked if anyone wanted to swim it. Psh, totally! So i jumped in and almost died...again. Yeah, it was totally awesome, but i had absolutely no control over where i was going. Slightly scary, but definitely worth it! Sorry, pictures are scarce since we couldn't take cameras...
The day turned out to be great, minus the five hours in a bus for an hour and a half of white water rafting. As much as i'm growing to love boats, I'm growing to dislike long bus rides... especially when it's dark out and i can't see anything.
