A day in the Rainforest
Stephen and Rachel, our tour guides!
On Sunday the 19th we went to a national reserve with Stephen and Rachel, Steven teaches with Danny. It is a protected area with about 8 miles worth of hiking trails through the rain forest and around a reservoir. We hiked about 6 miles of the way through, it was BEAUTIFUL!!
This picture is on the top of a ranger tower about 80 feet up. We were a little nervous about going up as it was beginning to rain and we could see lightening in the distance, but Stephen is the adventurous type and dragged us up. We were glad, it was a great view in all directions.
It was nice to be able to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and be surrounded by green. We even got far enough in that we couldn't hear the city noises!
Then at the end, trees. . . road! We walked along the road a little ways to the bus stop, looking forward to getting home and resting a little bit. . . Stephen and Rachel went to a different stop to take them home. I looked in the book and directed us to the bus we needed. We got on and I took a little nap, only to wake up in Yishun (the north part of the island) instead of HarborFront (the south, near our house). We had gotten on the correct bus, but the wrong side of the road! So, we got off, walked to the MRT (train) station, and took the 45 minute ride back home!
All in all, a great day!
