My fellow couchsurfer Jurij and Natasha's friend Praveen, from India, went to San Cipriano on Friday with neighbour Vivi and some others and went quite far into the jungle beyond the village, including wading through the San Cipriano river with their bags above their heads. As Natasha had to teach an english class on Friday, we came up the next day but unfortunately didn't arrive before sunset and in the middle of a very heavy rainstorm. The others couldn't come to meet us, condemned to another night alone in the jungle. We stayed in the main village and had a very fishy dinner of fish soup (sancocho de pescado) which was delicious and fried river fish, which was very boney but very fresh at least.
The next day we went swimming in the river first thing. It wasn't too cold, very pleasant to swim in, but also a very strong current so had to be careful. The others arrived from their exile and after some delicious coconut cake, baked in the coconut shell, we went back to Cali.
