Banana Bank is out there, way out there. To get there, you ride in a leaky rowboat that your "driver" pulls along across the River via a rope strung overhead. We're adventurous, so this was fine with us. We rented a cabana and got back from dinner, flipped on the lights, and had millions of what looked like cockroaches scurry away. But, folks, this is the jungle, bugs are there, so we left the lights on to scare away the roaches and we used the netting around the bed to keep out mosquitos, and we slept well. We stayed in a five star hotel in Nairobi once which was sprayed daily with horrible pesticides that made us sick, so we'd rather have banana bank's approach to live and let live (I guess). A cowboy, at dinner, served us delicious fried chicken and mashed potatoes. He said he was the owner and from our home State of Montana. He sang us the State song, and said we were the first visitors ever from his old home State. It was lots of fun. The place is funky bohemian and we loved it, bugs and all.
