    Thanks again for a great tour today. It was absolutely fantastic, and I had once in a lifetime experiences I’ll never forget. I also appreciate that you stopped at the cafeteria for me to grab some breakfast this morning. It was also a good place to visit, along with the Embera Village and the waterfall, of course. Thanks again!
