I went to the the rainforest yesterday. I went about 50m inside And some leeches started attaching themselves to my feet. I actually could have died. I would be no good as ray mears or bear grylls stealthily sneaking through the forest quiet as the wind being at one with the insects. I know its really wet but i just starting screaming and crashing about my guide had to individually pick them off my feet whilst I was nearly sick.
They move really fast for a creature that looks like a slug and when you pull them off your skin bleeds. I had the impression that they only drank "bad blood" like when they are used for medicinal purposes but unless I have a disease I don't know about i now know that's not true.
I'm currently in the immigration office as I'm over staying my visa by 3 days so have to pay a fine/new visa then I'm going to go to somewhere in the centre of the country for a few days before hitting a surf resort on the other coast. I can't surf but I think it sounds cool when I say that.
