The river rose six feet

The rain continued throughout the day of expedition kayaking. We paddled down the river, the color of creamed coffee. We didn't mind because we were wet anyway. The plan to sleep along the riverbank changed in case the river would continue to rise. The guides hacked out a clearing for a safer campsite on higher ground within the dense rainforest. The tiny little permanent residents didn't mind our intrusion; they just moved right in with us...or was it, us with them?
After a delicious, hearty dinner, we; 4 travelers, our guide and 2 porters, talked and laughed so much we forgot the little annoyances like ankle-deep mud, skin covered with deet and worse-for-wear appearance. We bonded as a team which made us beautiful.
