  skulls - mi's
by black_mimi99

Londa is a naturally occurring cave that's full of coffins, some extremely recently occupied, with a large collection of tau-tau guarding the entrance. One old man with kerosene lamps guide you through the winding corridors for a small fee, pointing out delightful sights such as the coffin that's broken open, allowing you to see the decomposing body inside, the skull that's still got a few tufts of hair stuck to it’
Especially when there's a tiny tunnel through which you can crawl for ten metres to get from one side of the cave complex to the other. It seems we can add claustrophobia to the phobias that my traveling has evaporated, because even though the tunnel was so small in places that we had to crawl single file on our bellies, I didn't freak out – but almost run away!!!! And Chris keep smiling on me. Luckily I’m not solo traveler when come here.
