We woke up just in time for breakfast. I felt bad for Ian as it was his first day but we had to start 'work' at 9am.
I had had it easy up until now, as I had blended into or rather, stole, other people's schedules. Ian met Adam and Sam too, a British couple stopping here for a couple of nights. Actually, they are staying in the forest for their month of volunteering, studying the monkeys as they are zoology students.)
There was a group of kids staying from the night before and while we were having breakfast, there had been a few shouts of 'Hey mister!', and 'Hello sir'. They were all very genki and not too shy at all to interact with us.
|With some of P wec visitors|
They were unbelievably lively, adults even more so than the kids. The kids did brave the activities but there were some tears.
|Flying Fox. Kids had no fear!|
We stopped for snack time, which was a pure injection of sugar!! You could see the long lasting effects on the adults more than anyone else!
The activities continued way past midday, for the kids and adults alike wanted more and kept dragging each other back for more and more fun.
We were just watching and taking pictures.
|The pipe with the holes!|
|This gibbon was in a really small cage.|
I constantly asked Rosek if it was going to be sent to Kalaweit.
He insisted it would be, but I am not so sure.
|He wasn't happy at all. |
A gibbon showing you his bottom means he does not like you!
This poor guy was not being treated so well, I thought.
But, I gave P wec the benefit of the doubt at this early stage.
Suddenly, it was 3 o'clock. Our day was done. I decided to show Ian the monkeys and the gibbon too. After that, we took a stroll down to the village. He loved it; the scenery, the kids smiling, everything was great. We walked along the very same paths that Harry had shown me on Tuesday.
By the time we returned, it was already dinner time and it was not long before our heavy eyes locked up for the night, only to open for the next feed of the next day.
