Kali Biru…

Kali biru translated means blue river.  We had to drive for well over one hour on a very cury hilly road to get there.  For most of the way the road was in quite good shape with just the occasional hole or bump.  Both sides of the road were often lined with jungle; a beautiful drive (provided gravol was consumed beforehand…).

After paying our 50,000 rupiah entrance fee ($5), we wasted no time taking on the cliff jumping.  I had to do it after some persuasion and peer pressure from my good friend Karen…  🙂  I have to admit that the feeling of your stomach slowly rising as you are falling, is not something I enjoy experiencing…  But now I can say that I jumped!

We also rented some big inner tubes and walked on a path upriver until we came to a good spot to go in and then let the current pull us to just before the falls where we could get out again.  None of us went over the falls…  Hugo pulled himself along the cliff wall until he was at the bottom, but that’s as close as any of us got…

It’s an incredibly beautiful spot!  We weren’t sure exactly when to go home, but that decision was made for us when a large bus of tourists pulled up and they swarmed our kids, thrusting their cameras in our kids faces…  Time to go!
