The highlight of our trip was the white water rafting, a 12km journey with thrills of tackling exciting rapids & floating down the water river through the beautiful rainforest. Some friends got tossed out of the boat (including me/Candy) and without exception, every one of us got soaked from head to toe. Throughout the journey, everyone was screaming, shouting and laughing. During the night we had another challenging activity which involved tracking through the thick and steep jungle. As it was raining earlier that morning, the track was slippery and full of leaches. Many got bitten all over including our Geshe-la (Oh Buddha!!!). We were required to hold hands with one another through (with torch off) the oil palm plantation to avoid being attack by snakes. More excitement for all!
We started the next day with a delicious local spread breakfast, followed by a 40 minutes walk to the waterfall. We spend about an hour playing & enjoying in the clear and cool waters from the forest.
Geshe Zopa simply loves the nature and clearly has enjoyed this short trip...and so did we! Thank you very much Geshe-la for making time to spend these 2 days with us. It was indeed a trip no one can forget & something money simply cannot buy!!!
We hope & pray you will come back again and again to Malaysia to be with your students who will continue to miss & love you dearly.
With much love, endless devotion & prayers,
William & Candy
