The other housemates and I joined a group of about twenty people, all set on the same adventure. The hike to the waterfall was long, and strenuous...one girl even took a taxi to the meeting point because she could not handle the burn. The rest of us were determined to complete it unassisted, knowing that fresh mountain water ...
