Me in the Caves

 

I already had some experience with visiting caves in Belgium and France, but today I would be my first time ever to visit caves outside Europe. My first time would be in the Grutas of “Cacahuamilpa”

 

Buuuutttt…..The day started really slow for me, as Tere was at school and I hadn’t anything to do. Therefore I learned some Spanish, watched some TV and did some exercises, because I knew that we were going in the afternoon and that is why I had to keep myself entertained during the morning.

 

After Tere picked me up we went to the caves.

“Cacahuamilpa” is a very laidback, relaxed and small town in the state of “Guerrero”. Besides the caves and the national park that surrounds the caves there is nothing else to do in this town. But the caves make it worthwhile to give this place a visit. During the entire time you are escorted by a guide which explains (unfortunately in Spanish, because you sometimes miss out on the anecdotes he is telling) everything you need to know about the caves and the park.

 

But the caves were amazing all the different stalactites and stalagmites were lit up with lights and as the group went deeper and deeper into the caves the bigger and better they became. It is very difficult to explain how amazing it was and hopefully the photos give a small impression. The nice thing was that they all had really funny shapes. One looked like a gorilla and another like an elephant. The best one was a combination on three stalagmites telling a story of 2 lovers who wanted to kiss, but their mother-in-law was against it.

 

After leaving the caves we were given the opportunity to do some abseiling. Sorry Mom, but I did it twice. It was really fun and cheap. I know I promised not to do crazy things, but I had to do it. You can see the movie I made during the abseiling. It is really nice. Making it the perfect ending for a amazing day.
