|That was our room for the week. Great spot. Also, the spot where we saw our first Stick Bug! Look it up.|

|Remains of a really old coffin. Creepy that we had to step all over it. That means we stepped on ghosts. Boo!|

|Our very impressive and knowledgeable guide. He was constantly searching out cool things that he would hand to us with a brief command: "Smell" or "Eat"|
The following three days were spent hiking and caving with our new friends we met at Cave Lodge.
We met Matt, Craig, and Chris – three Americans who had been teaching in Asia for close to eight years; alongside Helen – the incredibly fun and giggly Belgium solo-traveler; and the hilariously entertaining Argentinean family – Agostina, Gonza, and Emilio. Luis, the witty and whimsical dude from Spain was hanging out with us for a day, but we didn’t have the pleasure of getting to know him for long; he left to continue his travels as we were beginning our adventures at Cave Lodge.
