Beware of Poisonous Berries in Jungle

Last week, a good friend of mine and I went on a different biking trip in the forest. It was mostly more discovering than riding, and at every turn, so many wildly grown trees and vegetation, unusual village settlements, and pristine nature were awaiting us.

There was this house over the babbling river and you could only find your way to it, by passing a wooden bridge which honestly at first glance, didn’t seem much safe.

I’ve been to similar paths countless times and it is a new experience every time.

At the end of an animal path, that was rough enough to compel us to stop riding and drag our bikes along while walking, we finally found a way to access the refreshing river.

There.,I so pretty wildly grown red berries that I haven’t seen before and they seemed intriguing. Their joyous color and shining bright red, took me by surprise, and considering it was my first time seeing them, just like a child, I wanted to try them.

My friend (who is the same age as I am but considerably behaves more maturely and rationally than me!!!) scold me when I tried an unknown berry in the jungle. I merely taste it and it was kind of sweet, but I didn’t go any further, because I might not seem like it, but I’m not an idiot!!!

Anyway, I took a picture and searched for the berries in an app to find out more about these innocent-looking fruits to find out there are poisonous, & extremely dangerous…

Nature is always presenting something new and I appreciate its sincere effort to keep me on my toes

PS: I usually don't like to do this, but, I had to buy a powerful expensive VPN to upload all these photos, so I’m a little short in cash, being jobless and all at the moment, I'll appreciate it if you can donate. Either way, thanks for reading and I hope it was educational.

When I go riding on my bike, the world around me becomes exciting and so elegant all at once, so despite the shortcomings, disasters and horrors… I embrace it. I know it is not just me having these feelings, but I’m definitely another nature lover looking for unanswered questions in an extraordinary manner as well. I cherish the pictures caught by my camera and the ones remained forever in my essence.
