We woke up after a good night sleep, where we afterwards ate a local breakfast which was eggs and some special beans. The indigenous community had made a day plan for us to follow, which was so kind of them. They took us to the jungle for a long hike and showed some many different species of trees and plants. We got to see the cocoa-plant tree and the blood tree. It was really fascinating to watch! The cool thing about the blood tree was that it actually dripped a liquid that looked like blood and the locals used it for scars or mosquito bites. They gave us permission to take some cocoa and then they showed us how to make chocolate! Pure and raw delicious chocolate and it tastes really bitter but still good. Love me some chocolate anytime haha. Then we just relaxed and talked together. The beautiful thing about the surroundings of the community is that it is kind of isolated in the jungle - just like a tiny city.
The evening ended with again a really good dinner! Then they took us to a night hike where we saw bats, snakes and scorpions. Kind of scary in the middle of the night to walk in a jungle with so many wild animals, but fortunately, our local guide knew every direction and animal species that we could walk in to.
A bit of information about the community is that they have a president called Pancho, who was the head of everything there. He was also the one who greeted us and showed us around. They don't speak English, so our guide was the communicator between them and us. But they are the sweetest and loving people you'll ever meet.
