After three days and two nights I made it out of the jungle alive (barely).
Day 1: You know where you are? You're in the Jungle, baby.
After visiting the Elephant Nature Park I was a bit weary about riding elephants. But I will admit it was a little fun.

|To the top!|

|Hmong Village hut|
Day 2: Are we there yet?
|Bridge crossing to get to the waterfall|
Next, more uphill. Woot. Only 3 hours this time.

|Dairy followed us all day the second day. From the Hmong village to the second village.|
|Did the damn thing.|
And then we made it to the bamboo huts.
Final Day: The School and The End
In the second village we stayed in, we were shown the school. The schools, V explained, have students of all ages and from what we were able to see it seemed to be from the youngest, the little boy above, at about five or six up to maybe thirteen or fourteen years old all being taught by one person.
The conclusion of our excursion was a brief trip down the rapids and then a quick ride on a bamboo raft. Obviously being surrounded by water meant no camera so no pictures.
