Regardless of the brownish color of the river, we had a great time paddling against the strong current of the river. Thankfully, our two guides were expert in this field that we did not have a hard time going through the 21 rapids.
Whitewater rafting adventure is not complete without experiencing finding ourselves in the water. Although our master guide has years of experience in this activity, he failed many times to flip the raft because we were so good at counter balancing it.
So, when we almost approached the end of the trip, the master guide asked us if we wanted to experience how to fall out of a raft. It was a unanimous decision -- Oh, yeah!!!
After hearing that shrieking “yes,” we properly positioned ourselves in the boat so that it would be easier for us to be thrown out. Then, we navigated through the rapid and intentionally hit a big rock that caused us all to be pulled down to the bottom of the river and drank a mouthful of water. And that was the best part of it all.
I wanted to show you a video of that scene (like in the Titanic movie where the boat hit an iceberg). Unfortunately, the video camera’s SD card used to capture that moment was corrupted. Thus, we lost all unforgettable memories we had during our stay in CDO.
Nevertheless, it was a gratifying experience.
