In the Middle of Nowhere

There is one more thing to mention about Melaka, because the photos cannot describe it. The last day there, Mark and I spent 5 hours to get to Pulua Besar Island. It was a round about way of getting somewhere by getting ferry and bus information from people who didn't really know. After the ferry wouldn't leave because they didn't have at least 12 passengers, racing in a cab to the other dock to find out we had to take a bus to another place, taking a bus that took an hour to catch, getting to a transfer station to take another bus that took us a 30 second walk from where we originally started, then arriving at the dock to discover the last ferry left 10 minutes ago and the next one wasn't for another 2 1/2 hours, we finally arrived at 3pm! Anyway, the part I wanted to mention was being in the middle of the rainforest with the cicadas humming so loudly, it was an intense shrill. It was like an opera with the audience being the immense trees looming above us so tall. I wish I took a video, but the last ferry was going to leave soon. P
