From here, follow the trail, walk while marking the grass higher than the head of a person. If you are lucky, you can see with your own eyes that the gamblers wandering around for food and the shadow of people, will quickly disappear. Or the naughty squirrels pass back and forth on the branches of the old crocodile tree that a few people hug. And the most interesting thing is to see the scenery like “paradise in the middle of the world” in Frog Pond.
