Last days in San Ignacio de Tupile
When we got back to RHAPSODY that night, we were filled with
the excitement of the day. We sat up most of the
evening talking about everything that we'd seen and experienced
on the island. It is hard to explain the feeling of being here.
We were clearly the only two "gringos" on the island for the last
couple of days. With no cars, much less roads; with largely only
dugout canoes, fish from the ocean, and the sweat of their brows, these
people have built institutions and society from nothing more
than jungle and coconuts. They are happy because they believe in this
special life they have built. It is so different from anything
that we've experienced that words have a hard time doing it
Because of inclement weather, specifically the fact that it rained
and was windy, we spent the following two days at anchor off Tupile
doing boat chores and writing webpages so that you could share
this experience with us.
I hope you enjoy it!
