Hold on to that feelinggg! Changin the words, but not the vibe! (Don’t stop believing by Journey) Basically, we did a whole lot of weeding today! It was fantastic. It wasn’t very difficult work, which was perfect for our last official day of helping at the sanctuary. We just spent the day chatting, singing and weeding together. We played a funky game during one of our breaks too called the stick trick. One of my friends, Nick, can complete this in 5 seconds but it is nearly impossible to beat that time. The pictures show you a bit of what the stick trick entails.
This group also got their turn in blessing the tress this afternoon. We maneuvered our way through the jungle and saved all the trees we could! It was very cool for them to be apart of this. Holding that power in your hands is very surreal, and everyone enjoyed tying the scarves around each tree trunk. Now nobody can cut them down! Afterwards, we made our way back to the watering hole and gave Arun Ria her last scrub down for the week. Everyone knew I was going to start another water fight, but they were all prepared this time and ganged up on me. 16 against one. Touché, guys, touché. It was a really fun last day out here though, and I can’t imagine a better way to end our time than a bonfire in the jungle. Tomorrow we will make our way back to Siem Reap!
