Next morning after an early breakfast the children went for their bamboo rafting down the Langat river. For some is was something new whilst a few had done white water before. See, this group are members of the Hash House, used to outdoors and all that comes with it. Following the bamboo rafting they headed for the jungle track for a 2 hour track both ways. Along the way they were shown how to make traps, fine water and even fine sugar, in case you need some for your tea - some basic fieldcraft.
The day ended back at Uluhati where they had lunch before bidding goodbye. All in I think they had a full weekend, at least the children, whilst the parents made full use of the occasion to unwind.

Water level was just great. Too low then we will spend a lot of time trying to get the raft unstuck from the rocks. Too high then it gets a tad risky.
Thank you Robert and Rita for spending the weekend with us.
