Panda Reserve

Chengdu, China


AM: Visit Panda Breeding Center, way cooler than any zoo. If you love cute fury critters, don't miss the panda reserve, especially the baby nursing area. Go rain or shine, it's not to be missed! Also check out the red Pandas (the lesser panda), they are sometimes overlooked, but you can pay to hold and pet them!

PM: Drive to Emei Shan (Emei Mountain) area and see local Herb Farms. 3 star Emei Shan hotel. Also, take a dip in the lovely and huge hot springs around the corner! They even had herbal baths to take a dip in. You can even buy a pair of retro swimming trunks for a few bucks, sweet.

Hotel. back to Hakoune for quality hot spring time

Hakoune Onsen (a hot spring hotel) 箱根溫泉生活館, Taiwan


2007-07-19 19:59. BA Hakoune Onsen hot Spring hotel for the second night.

2007-07-19 20:29. Getting ready to head to the hot Spring area.

2007-07-19 22:09. Pool, water area closed for day, returned to room for shower.

We were originally supposed to be discussing plans for our bus' end-of-tour performance. Instead, we just enjoyed the hot Spring area. Conversation and clapping games in the hot sitting and wading areas, splashed, formed and dragged people in human-link-trains at the waist-high cold pool.

We changed our minds about Asian bathing when saw someone step right into what we had thought was the clean water trough. Decided to wash again with proper showers back in our room.

Hot Spring to Bajawa

Bajawa, Indonesia



After the eventful night in Riung the sun finally came up and we set off for Bajawa with no real explanation for what happened except 'spirts'. Driving to Bajawagave us the chance to sit back, relax and enjoy the magnificent mountainous greenery around every twist and turn in the road. This scene animated by the children and animals playing dangerously close to the side of road. Just before arriving in Bajawa we stopped at a very hot and unoccupied natural Spring. Dino had a shave, everyone slowly got in and Brian sat on the side because his sunburn from the snorkeling was in the painful stage.

Apres la folle nuit de Riung, qui est reste sans explication sauf Celle des esprits qui seraient venus nous saluer (ils sont animistes dans cette region), nous sommes partis pour Bajawa. Ouf, fini la jungle. Nous avons retrouve notre route chaotique preferee et apprecie de nouveau les paysages. Nous nous sommes arretes sur un site naturel ou l'eau jaillit a 40 degres. Nous etions les seuls! Les indonesiens utilisent ces bains pour faire leur toilette vu que l'eau n'est pas stagnante et part vers une riviere. Pendant que nous faisions trempette, Dino faisait sa toilette et s'est rase! Malheuseusement Brian n'a pas pu entrer dans cette eau qui etait trop chaude pour ses coups de soleil.

After the Spring, we made it to Bajawa where we had a look around the market and had lunch. Nothing exceptional to add apart from the presence of the clouds passing through the streets and accidentally leaving our bag at the restaurant for all of a few minutes while we crossed the road.

A Bajawa, rien de special a part le marche qui etait bien sympa et le fait qu'on ait oublie notre sac dans un restaurant avant de realiser quelques minutes plus tard qu'on l'avait oublie...
