    Nice shared house

    I liked living in this shared house with a couple of friends. 5 people in a two room appartment is not ideal, but it worked out very good. Clean rooms, nice kitchen & livingroom (with 1 threeseater en a oneseater, big tv and airco) and ok bathroom with good shower. You can eat outside on one of the two pick-nick tabels (in stone). There is also a nice little pool.

    ... and have some picture moments to wrap it around ourselves. Next up was the reptile house, with lots of iguanas and snakes and frogs. Some of the animals are pretty quick and lively at night! Walking through the crocodile enclosures was very different from the daytime. At night, they are awake and eyeing you for dinner. Looking into their eyes does indeed remind you they are a very, very, old species - it's quite chilling! We met up ...

    Batty about snakes and other wildlife

    ... to catch a bat or two for dinner. That particular tube is the 'maternity hospital' where bats are delivered, which is why there are so many. When they are older and leave there is a quieter period for a few months when the snakes have to go elsewhere for supper. At the peak period there can be 5 or 6 different species of snake waiting in the trees but as it is near the end of the season the ones we saw were all brown tree snakes.

    I must say that this sunset tour ...

    ... the several story threads I'm weaving. And I have to refresh my memory with it again. Sometimes this has the desired effect, sometimes I just feel like I can't get back in the zone for this particular story. This seems to be one of the latter. With this short story I've been working on, I've tried a different style - I've gone minimalist and I've even put some humour into it. I'm not sure it is working and my first reaction is ...

    ... We had two very nice gentlemen. Wolfgang the driver, is as you may have gathered, originally from Germany. He ended up being blessed with our presence for the English portion of the tour. George is an Aussie, fluent in French, who had a group of 8 "Frenchies" as Wolfgang lovingly referred to them to keep track of. The 12 of us were on the same little mini bus, with us cool kids having the seats up front. We swung by and picked up the Frenchies and we were on our way. ...
