We got up early and started walking through the jungle toward the Blanche Marie resort at dawn. We heard the usual birds and monkeys along the way, but we also found a small poisonous snake in the track. The friendly owner greeted us when we got to the resort a few hours later, but we were a little disappointed to find out that we were the only guests.
I walked all around the resort in the afternoon, the highlight being the Blanche Marie waterfall. It wasn't as amazing an experience as Kaieteur Falls, but it still was a beautiful place to visit. Tonight I was exhausted, there was no TV for the New Year's countdown, and nobody to celebrate with, so I was in bed by 9:00. It was the first New Year's in memory where I wasn't even awake at midnight.
