FC: My Adventures in the Tropical Rainforest | Marcelo M. 6B #10 Ms. Marcela January 20, 2011
2: Chapter 1: The Trip | One day, me and my friends had nothing to do, we were all bored. Then, an incredible idea came to me. I told my friends that we needed some vacations. We decided to go on an adventure to a tropical rain forest. Everyone went to their houses and packed. I put on my back pack some shorts, short leaved shirts, a pair of sneakers, water, and snacks. We bought the air plane tickets and took off for our trip. I can't wait till we arrive. We were going to Panama City!
3: Chapter 11: T.R.F. | My friends Jorge, Luis, Kevin, and me finally arrived to Panama. We were going to stay in a hotel that is inside a tropical rain forest. It was incredible, it had sight to the rain forest! When we woke up, the first thing we did in the morning was to take a little bus to the rain forest. It was all wet and you may see snakes hidden in the leaves. Luis was taking pictures of everything but then his camera fell to the ground because of a bump in which we pass. The bus guy stopped and everyone went to search for the camera.
4: After finding the camera we returned to the bus, but we found a jaguar. The driver was not there, just a rag of his shirt. My friends and I were terrified and went running into the forest. we ran till we got lost, but we were alive. For our luck, we had our back packs with us. We could survive lost maybe for some days. We tried calling someone, but our cellphones had no signal. we walk for hours until we heard a ¡Beep! It was Jorge's phone that had a bar of signal. He rapidly tried to make a call but then and echo of a jaguar's roar was heard. Jorge got scared and accidentally led the phone out of his hand. It wad felled into a pond and when he pick it up, it didn't react. We were so desperate so we kept walking madly.
5: "Hey guys, look!" said Kevin. It was a cave, maybe we could spent the night in there. We go ahead and found the unexpected. The sound of our voice had waken up a whole bat community. They started fluttering desperately inside the cave. My friends and I get out of the cave in that instant. "Run for your lives!" shouted Luis. Night was coming and we had no shelter. I think luck was returning back to us because Jorge was carrying a tent in his back pack. We just needed to build it.That night we slept okay because the tent was just for 3 people, and we were four. It was now morning and a peacock had waken us up. It was really nice to hear the sound of Tropical birds after a rainy night. On the rain forest it rains over 200 cm yearly, I think tonight it rain about 50% of that. It was all humid and was about 25*C. Our provisions had run out so my friends and I took off in search for more food.
6: Chapter 111 "Civilization" | It was easy for us to find our breakfast. We found a variety of fruit plants. Together we found pomegranate, papaya, kiwi, apricot, and some coconuts from which to drink. We ate like kings in a royal party. I didn't like much of these but I needed to eat in order to survive. We saved some food for lunch and dinner. After breakfast we took off and try to search for help. After walking for some minutes, we got to an open area and in there were little wooden houses with palms. There were also indigenous people living! we asked for help but nobody understand us. Then I found a person that could understand us.
7: This person told us that he had saw some saviors. He said that they asked for a group of lost people that were on a bus. he pointed to the direction in which the saviors went. Suddenly, a jaguar appeared. It was looking at a little child and approaching to him.Then I slowly grabbed a rock and threw it to the beast. It turn and ran towards me when he fell to the ground. the jaguar was laying on the ground with a bolt in his stomach. It was the saviors. They had sleep the jaguar. We told them that we were the lost people so they took us into their helicopter. There was the bus driver, alive! he had survived. we finally arrived to the hotel.
