This is a view of the river inside the cave, there is a small cruise between some ports, in the middle we can see those rock formations, pay attention and you will see the blue part, for me looks like the eyes of a huge dragon hidden. The image has not so good quality, I took it with my cellphone, inside a boat in movement.
I was in the upper part of the cave, I went down the stairs, hundreds of steps, imagining my guide would be there, but she wasn't. I asked for the women working in the port, I used my translator, I used mimics. After some time they indicated me to enter in the boat and cross the river and reach the other port. I crossed the river and asked for help of the other people, but they sent me to the boat again. This way I did the cruise three times and in the worst part I was in a port, lost and surrounded by hundreds of Chinese tourists and couldn't find communication with nobody.
I came back to the first port and when the first women saw me in the port again they became to laugh. In their faces was: What are you doing here yet!!!
I was sent to the other side of the river again, and I saw two different ways. I decided to take one and come back if it was the wrong way, the hour of the closing of the cave was arriving and I was afraid they would close me inside. Nobody in the way and after some minutes I found a hall I had visited and I found the external gate. My guide was waiting me there and asked me apologizes twenty times, and she laugh a lot.
I wold habe been nice if you could have cleaned moved out the head in lower patr. During all your cruises you didn't get the opportunity to find the better place. Sorry i'm joking. I'm sure it must not be confortable when you are lost and no one understand you !.
What a beautiful and fascinating sight - and what a subterranean adventure! I really can commisserate with you and your excitement down in the cave. Thank your for the interesting note! The heads in foreground give the impression of being there with you...
Greetings from wet, grey and cold Germany! Brrr!
Boa Tarde Jorge,
Your story reminds me of being abandoned in St Petersburg by a guide who told us to catch a bus back to the boat at St. Peter's Square. There must have been 100 buses parked there. I was terrified! SAA, Pat
