Where I stayed
Koh Rong Backpackers
Another jungle trek...this time to find a lagoon up a river. Did another local recommend this? Yes. Did we know where the river was? No. I feel like this must have been what it was like back in the country where they gave directions relative to 'that ridge over yonder' and 'in the second hollow you'll see the big oak tree where you take a right'. Some local tells us to walk around past the treehouse bungalows and look for the giant river emptying into the ocean. We were then supposed to 'walk up the river' literally, until we found a lagoon...a mere 45 minute walk upriver. Uhhhh, sounds like a great idea. Unfortunately, our first attempt was not actually the river, but a stagnant pooling of water that was surely a malaria breeding ground
I really really think I'm leaving tomorrow. I. have. to. go. Motivation. Would it be so horrible to stay on an island for weeks and weeks?? Is culture really so important? lol.
