text: After we had climbed over many tree trunks which had fallen and blocked the way, we reached the second river which was running along between the shade of tall trees, but which just here made a bend and included a sunny stone bank. The bridge which stretched from an enormous ficus tree to another one across, consisted of a single halved tree trunk and the railing of bamboo.
