Coconut Tahini Bites

This river, hidden in a corner of Vilcabamba, turned out to be a secret spot right on the edge of town! What! And its SO beautiful! I just find myself staring, staring at the bend in the river where the curve of  the water turns in to the trees. This Sunday these little kids all stripped and jumped in, giggling and screaming with the cold water. The weather was so hot and the water SO cold! Tiko went over to check them out immediately, followed by Chevalo, R’s dog, who goes with me and Tiko almost every Sunday now!
