A Walk in the Jungle
I think that most of us who live in cooler, more temperate climates and where rainfall is something we anticipate, have no real idea of what the jungle is really like. If your idea of the jungle comes from watching reruns of The African Queen, then you will be in for a huge surprise if you ever visit a real jungle. Yes, there are bugs. Yes, it is hot and humid. Yes, it rains frequently. But you also will find that it is beautiful and has such a huge variety of plants and animals that you never grow tired of looking at your surroundings in wonder. For me, it is a lot like the desert but with plants.
