Day 15: Hiking
As I slipped and slid down the small section of the hill, I could feel the sweat building up on my forehead and wondered whether I had turned tan or not. We were in the middle of a mountain, far away from anything of civilization. For three to four hours, I was surrounded by trees and nature, hoping that we could find a shady place. Even in the trail under the heat of the sun, I had to admit that the adventure was pretty interesting and fun. We skipped through rivers with rushing water, climbed thousands of steps, and rock climbed down walls of boulders. I think it was the sense that we could go anywhere that intrigued me. Other than the red arrows and tie-dye strips hanging on trees, everything else was up to us. I learned the importance of effective communication in a timely manner since the front of the group could be 20 meters away from the back. I think that these hours of hiking really brought us closer together as a group and closer to the environment and nature.
