21 Mar 2018 (Mindo, Ecuador): Here we are ziplining, but the real standout for the day was rafting. Unfortunately, there are no photos of it because we were warned not to bring anything with us. Leah and I were whisked to the river, we sat on the junction points of 6 innertubes lashed together, and Edison guided our “raft” through a shockingly perilous stretch of 20 minutes of river. We were in awe of (1) how hard Edison was working, (2) how shockingly unsafe this whole thing is, (3) the complete lack of a waiver or even discussion of safety beyond “hold this very hard.” It was a blast, but I would never let my kid do it.
