At first we needed to take a boat to get to the floating house. Each person needed to wear a life jacket due to the deep water. After about 10 minutes we arrived at our destination. We reserved a little hut where we could lay our stuff and people from the restaurant came to provide food. From the floating house we could just jump straight off the platform to swim. If you aren't an experienced swimmer a lifejacket is a must due to how deep the water is. There isn't a shallow shore in the lake and several other students tried to reach the bottom of the lake out of curiousity but never made it down. The bright side of the deep water is jumping into it! There were two platforms: one about six feet and the other ten feet. All day we each jumped into the water in various styles from cannonballs, frontflips, and jumping backwards into the deep blue water. After swimming the next best thing was to come, food! We ordered a giant amount of food, from different kind of fish dishes to deep fried frog, we ate until our stomachs gave out. After lunch some continued to swim while others laid out in the sun. What I loved most about the lake was that no matter what you did, kayak, swim, eat, or lay in the sun, everyone was enjoying the moment. After so many weeks of being busy, having no plans at that moment was the best. The lake lay in the middle of a jungle and added to the ambiance of being away from civilization. With no domestic buildings in site, the lake was a quick getaway from the city where folks can come and relax. Presentations are coming up this week and the lake trip was definitely a much needed break to be ready to work this week.
