The funniest, luv buddy thx 4 join us

While on a cruise, we arranged a tour with Gil. It turned out that 15 other passengers from the ship comprised the balance of the group. The boat was comfortable with plenty of seats, on the jungle hike we saw sloths and some birds, the time in the smaller canoes was enjoyable, the food offered was good, the drinks excellent and the meeting of the waters, at the end of the tour, was lovely, although I found the one in Manus more spectacular. Gil returned us to the ship with plenty of time to spare.

However, by far the best entertainment was Gil himself. He is very knowledgeable of the wildlife and local lore and very willing to share. His family history could be made into a Hollywood movie but only sold as fiction. He was extremely entertaining. As we were with the other passengers for about 15 more days, Gil continued to be a major topic of discussion for the remaining time. I can safely say that for the majority of us on this tour, he was one of the highlights of the trip.
