Solo Flight-Survived Cab Ride To and From Gumbalimba Park

Went to Gumbalima Park on Monday!

Monday was my off day, so I went to Gumbalimba Park (it’s located between West End and West Bay. Joe said I was ready to hit the wild world of transportation after proving myself last week making it to Coxen Hole everyday for the medical/dental clinic. So, after getting the key information about how much to pay for cab (they rip off Americans because they think we are rich), off I went, all by myself.

To catch a cab, I have to walk down to the main road and flagged them down. As expected, he tried to charge me 70 lps, but I managed to get him to 50lps (about $2.50 American)with the help of another passenger in cab. That’s another thing-you don’t get a private cab ride-he picks up people along the way, so you could end up with a car load. Anyway, I was feeling pretty good after getting and negotiating  cab, when I heard this load noise from under the car-it was like something broke off! The driver pulled over, got out and said it was the brakes ( the passenger was translating). I’m thinking great-I’m out here in hilly “nowhere land”  and he has NO BRAKES! Of course, I had already prayed (I pray all the time-seriously), but it was SUPER PRAYER TIME! Long story-short-apparently, it wasn’t his brakes, because we made it to the park!

  1. It’s too bad that “spammers” place Replys on personal blogs like this…….I guess they have nothing better to do than clutter up the internet, and are basically good for nothing. Wish they would get a real job instead of sitting in front of a keyboard somewhere picking their nose…………..

  2. Hi I am 18 years old currently studying. I ask you to please do the moral thing and use your site to spread the truth so we can blow the lies and cover ups out of the water and maybe earth wont be so ravaged by war pollution and greedy lying theiving bankers and politicians….. is anyone out there willing to change the world for the better?
