One of the activities of the lodge was trying out the old blowgun. Our native guide gave us a physical demonstration while the English speaking one explained how it was done. We then took turns. I have to admit I didn't think any of us would be able to get the dark out of the gun but I managed to hit the target (an apple, a fair distance) three out of three tries. Our guide was shaking in his rubber boots since he'd only hit it twice!
