I feel like I haven’t blogged in so long! I’ve had midterm exams and papers to write these past two weeks, but I’m finally a lot freer, so I can get back on track with this. Today a large group of us went hiking in Sai Wan and further down to the Sheung Luk stream/waterfall. The hike was SO steep and rough, but thank God we all made it there and back safely. The views were beautiful and the water felt great, and we all had a great time. I had never done anything like this before – the combination of the long, steep and scary hike and rock climbing, culminated with the great swim and watching my friends cliff-dive (I’m neither the bravest nor the best swimmer out here). Here are some of the photos I was able to take before getting into the water.
SO beautiful! Getting to the waterfall was so dangerous and scary though. There were (of course) no lifeguards or stream watchers (lol) to save anyone if they fell or were drowning. There was also no safety rock climbing equipment, which I guess gave us all some sort of weird thrill. 😐
