      ... in sight but there was a FAN!! After cooling down a bit, we manage to find a living soul in there who tells us that the waterfall is 1 kilometre away. Ok, we decide we could probably manage 1 kilometre. We are back on the road, trying to cover ourselves with backpacks to avoid burns - totally pathetic attempt since we are red as crabs already. 15 minutes in we ask someone else where this bloody waterfall is and we are told that it's 1 kilometre away (!!!). ...

      The owner of the bar where we stopped (nice guy, ex-Marine from Florida, with a Brooklyn accent who sold his business in Georgia to move here) came out ...
