We take a short chug back down the river, jump in the Kayak’s and paddle up a small tributary to a small falls and a plantation. The owner tells us he surprised a large snake in the sugar cane and the machete won the day, fortunate as it was poisonous, and he shows us a clutch of eggs the snake was incubating. We walk further in and I’m surprised by a small snake that shoots between my legs. Actually I am just imagining it after the snake story. Up the hill you can see the whole plantation, an are the owner cleared from the jungle. He groes cane, pineapples, rice and hads a few water buffalo. Back down and s**t there’s that bloody snake again (it is real not my mind playing tricks) and it is fast unnervingly so when Channy points out it too is poisonous.
We head back to the village for a swim in the river and bit of fishing. We get chatting over dinner with some newly weds from Cornwall and we sit around chatting and showing them pictures of the Bamboo railway. Channy wants the photos from today so we all sit around drinking copying the files and checking out Channys wedding photos. We board a boat for a short hop along the river to see a tree full of fireflies. It is magical they really are bright and the tree really does look like christmas tree.
So to bed for and 8 am checkout
PS I hope you’re impressed by our command of the technology, and the slide shows.
