Reaching Our Last Camp

It’s crazy to think how quickly time flies – day 49 on the river puts us at our last camp of the journey. We were able to have a little fun with henna thanks to our wonderful artist Krushnaa! Henna is a paste made out of crushed leaves and the twigs of a henna plant. When the paste is applied to the skin, it leaves a stain and usually lasts for 7-14 days.

We had a visitor surprise us – a large checkered keel snake! It was huge and crossed the river towards us. It made a few people in the group uneasy, but it was probably more afraid of us than anything.
