Terrill was dreaming up ways to start another lodge on the top of that plateau. Anyone interested?
We went on a short hike one day and saw other waterfalls up close.
Our guide, Martin, took us to some caves. He said that some of his people (the Sebei) used to live in these caves. His facts were a little fuzzy, but they made for interesting stories. He told us that the Sebei only had one king and his name was Kingo (after the English word 'king'...My Big Fat Greek Wedding anyone?). He said that this king had six wives and 76 children and that the descendants of the king are now the wealthiest Sebei around. He explored the cave below and once found a room full of crystals. It took him three hours of crawling through the cave to find that room. This is definitely a landmark in the Sebei culture.
Some of the rocks in the cave formed smooth indentions where Martin says people slept. He says that Sebei still bring their animals into this cave when they fear enemies or want to come out of the rain.
Next we hiked to another larger waterfall. This waterfall also has a cave behind it but Martin says it's a man-made cave. People chip away at the rock to get salt for their animals.
From behind the waterfall...the water was pounding and a mist encircled us.
Thank the Lord for these times of getting away, relaxing & reflecting.
