250. Mud trail
Finally, the logging road ended. We celebrated it by cooking some rice before entering the muddy forest trail. It was a very different experience from the logging road. On the logging road, we almost always had a nice view of the surrounding area, but here one could not see very far and it was slippery and muddy, going up and down, over ridges and fallen trees.
    Then there were the leeches. We could see them crawling on the ground and as soon as we stopped we had to remove several from our shoes and trousers. However, we felt rather safe, our trousers were tight and we had good shoes. We didn't know how wrong we were!
