We have spent most of the day hiking in the jungle. Land leeches reach up from the ground trying to hitch a ride like earthworms standing on their tippy toes. Exhausted, we stop to rest in an abandoned shelter with maps of the reserve's trails on the walls. I rest my arms across the table and a bright green gecko approaches me. It begins to lick my hands that are sticky from snacking on lychee fruits all day. I have a couple left, so I slowly pull a red fruit from my pocket and peel off its skin.
