... and frogs on our way home in the dark.

Both attractions were worthwhile. Damian described the calcium formations in the caves as the best he had ever seen. The main chamber was being used for classical concerts in the mid-sixties and our guide, Emile, treated us to a spine-tingling acapella, rendition of a hymn to demonstrate the acoustics.
