... up a couple of other groups in our van we hurried up to see this natural wonder. We stopped along the way at a local market as the monsoon rains began to fall to pick up a poncho and some snacks.

As we were being registered, we were greeted by some of the islands local inhabitants, monkeys and monitor lizards. I ...
