Day 3: Cthrava Swamp, near Pathra. Each day we went to an outcropping of the Mataxai Peaks - a pristine natural, untouched expanse from the main Abbey. We took the bus to Mataxai from Pathra and it was perfect. We spent two hours walking on both sides of the river, in and out of the swamp, and enjoyed the thick black plumes as they encircled, broad shouldered but lean bodied, like the black beans at dinner. We also stayed in Yandere over the weekend.
