After a taxi ride to the bus stop, a bus ride, another taxi ride (which we were overcharged for) we finally made it to the top of the stairs at the cave entrance. I could feel the cold air drifting up, literally calling me into the darkness. Feeling a little like Perseus entering the gorgons lair, we made the descent.
|Quality sister time in the darkness.|
We contemplated turning around before the end of the tunnel, but thankfully we persevered and were able to view this beautiful lava column. We even got a tiny glimpse of some creatures of darkness hanging out in the opening at the top of the column. I know bats don’t exactly endear themselves, and the poor things can’t really help it that they are always associated with vampires, but they eat mosquitoes and are therefore heroes in my book.
|I can see the light!!|
