Jungles and Canals

I suppose this would be considered an 'unplanned adventure'....although a different type than the one I've been on for the past many months. Last night I sat on the deck of an old radio tower built by the Americans and turned into a hotel. I watched a sloth (with baby attached) climb up a tree, listened to the distant ghostlike groans of howler monkeys, and smiled along with the antics of flitting toucans. False Vampire Bats visit during the night. I look over the treetops in the jungle and watch ships passing through the Panama Canal.

Sure beats radiation, eh?? Sounds very tropical - I am envious! Hey, Andrew is "studying" rainforests this month, so if you can bring back a giant bug carcass or something like that, he'd be the coolest pre-schooler in all of show & tell. Hope your trip is going smooth!

Love, Mo

So, Lynn Sommers, where in the world are you now? I didn't hear about your summer plans... My boys are out of school as of today, with all sorts of ideas for making movies, recording music, building swords. MD
