Nathan wasn’t feeling well yesterday, so he stayed home while I went to school. Normally we ride our motorcycle to school, but since I can’t drive the bike, I walked. It’s about a 5 minute walk through the jungle from our house to school.
Stepped off the driveway and turned right. The fence on the right of the photo is ours. See the cement balls on top of the pillars? They all look like soccer balls. I imagine that when this fence was built, soccer balls were filled with cement and then later peeled away. Oh, and there’s that brick street again that I love.
Our neighbor’s rooster. We hear him crow everyday.
Now the road starts heading into the jungle. Pretty moss on bricks. Love. It.
This bamboo fence runs along the bricked part of the jungle path, which I am grateful for because the bricks can be slippery! I am not, however, grateful for the spiders that make their homes there. Especially when I slip, grab the fence for balance and stick my hand right through a spider web.
No more brick road. Just a dirt path now and no fence. If you slip now, it’s every man for himself. (Thankfully I didn’t slip yesterday!) One time when I was walking on this path something pooped on me. Isn’t that supposed to be good luck or something? Or is it bad luck? I don’t remember.
About halfway down the path, you come across this little bamboo bridge. It crosses over a little stream.
The little stream.
Further up the path, the jungle opens up a little bit into this clearing. Well, it’s not really a clearing, but it’s not dense jungle. Anyway, it’s really pretty when the sun shines through the trees! So many different shades of green!
Heading up out of the jungle now.
We pass by this house and say “selamat siang” to the nice lady doing her laundry.
Turn right onto the big road and we’re almost there!!
Up these stairs and we made it!
I don’t have any pictures of school to share with you today. We’ll save that for another time.
Obviously this is not the path we take on the motorcycle…we take the main road around. But if you’re walking, the jungle path is the quickest!
Hope you enjoyed our little jaunt through the jungle!
