    Paradise diving amongst poverty

    ... finding amusement in life's simple pleasures. No needless wants and desires here. Skipping ropes, wheels, bin lids and each other provided hours of fun. There is a stark contrast between the modernity of the resorts and the extremely basic homes of the villagers.  Nevertheless all of the people living here seem healthy, extremely friendly and well fed.  Although there is true poverty in the villages, their basic needs seem to be covered and they are living the way they have lived ...

    The circle of life

    ... Being the youngest and fittest there we could keep up easily with the guides pace so we got right to the front to see the mother turtle giving birth. It was a peculiar but fantastic thing to see and also very rare. She was ginormous and the eggs so small. Throughout the whole event the turtles go into a sort of trance which is good because therefore the humans do not cause too much disturbance. We weren't allowed to use flash or any form of lighting to ensure we ...

    ... in the first place. We spent the boat rides scouring the trees for large, orange-ish shapes hidden among the leaves. We were heading back for breakfast after the morning boat ride on the second day when we saw one of the other boats parked along the bank. The other guide signed "orangutan" to our guide and we made a bee-line for the bank. It was hard to see the orangutans, but they were unmistakable. We could make out a dark, furry creature and a ...

    ... last stage of the evening, we headed back to the beach to let them go.

    Off they all went into the sea and unfortunately………̷ 0;…almost certain death. Yeah sorry, but only 3% of them actually survive to adulthood. But even still, it was very cool watching them all charge into the ocean and quite funny watching a handful of them go completely the wrong way. Don’t think they are going to make the lucky 3% ...
