Caves

September 28, 2008 at 9:46 pm 2 comments

Today we went to the caves by bike. We swam in a lagoon and then made our way through what seemed like a jungle (it wasn’t. It was a rice paddy amidst mountains) to the cave. Someone had to stay and watch the bags while the others swam through the cave. I volunteered. It started thundering and raining and the 15 year old guide ushered everyone out of the cave. We made our way back to the little hut grocery store run by the guide’s parents. They offered us bananas and sticky rice. I played with a small cat. The boy made a fire and we exchanged a few English words. When the rain was minimal, we got on our bikes and went back the 40 kilometers to town. It was a really nice day spent with good people.

 

ps. A lot of people come to this town to get f-d up. But there’s so much more to it. The mountains are beautiful. My favorite times have been driving down the dirt roads surrounded by trees, mountains, and sky. During these times i feel a sense of fulfillment i rarely ever feel. That, and i love the dance scene. I love dancing to electronic music in the open air with welcoming people! In New York, the club scene is mostly a downer. Here it’s <3
