Today after a half day of service work at St. Matthew's School, we went on a canoeing trip on the Sibun River. We first rode on a 15 minute bus ride through orange groves to reach the point of entry on the river. We then boarded canoes in groups of two or three. During the hour-long trip, we saw a howler monkey perching in a tree, as well as many species of birds and a few iguanas. After the trip, we all hopped out of our canoes and swam in the river, many of us trying and ultimately failing at swimming upstream. On the bus ride back to Monkey Bay, there were many mosquitoes swarming around in the bus and people were frantically spraying bug repellent in the air and swatting at the numerous pests.
