Underground River and Goodbye Chelsea!

Today we checked out the underground river, a natural wonder of the world which consists of a network of caves extending 8 km underground that you can paddle through on a boat.  We woke up early to board the bus for a bumpy two-hour ride to the other side of the island. Big surprise, everyone else on our tour was – Asian!! Weee!  Oh well. Nobody new to talk to but we were used to it by then.  Our bus stopped at Sabang Beach, which was beautiful!  We had a great buffet lunch filled with local foods and after that took a small boat to the entrance of the caves.  We got to see some cute monkeys and humongous lizards as well.

The caves themselves were very impressive, just the type of place you might expect to see tons of bats and an underground lair worthy of Bruce Wayne.  The boat ride itself was cool, our tour guide was very funny and pointed out the sights to us.  Just me, Chelsea and a whooole bunch of Asians. Sigh.
After the river and a bumpy ride back to Puerto Princesa, we took a long walk and discovered a sweet department store and a cute restaurant called Heavenly Desserts by Dorothy, where we ate dinner and had some heavenly desserts!  Then another very quiet night at our guesthouse – Puss in Boots was on (our only movie option) so we watched that and called it a night.  In the morning me and Chelsea said our goodbyes, she was off to Manila and eventually Vancouver while I had the pleasure of staying in Palawan for another three nights!! urg.
