First of all I am proud of my self because I came back to HCMC in one piece😀. Because we (5th grade) went to a 2-night and 3-day trip to Cat Tien. We saw stuff that we couldn't see in HCMC because of all the pollution and the buildings🏢🏠. We saw stuff like plants🍃 we couldn't see in HCMC and a lot a lot a lot of stars⭐️⭐️⭐️ and gibbons and animals 🐻🐍🐟🐝🐛🐜🐈🐁🐰🐞. The cabins were very nice🏠. But our cabin (Hornbill🐦) was especially the best because they fixed it recently🔩🔨🔍.
The good thing in Cat Tien was (my opinion) the bonfire because we all participated in it🔥 also we roasted some marshmallows👍🏻!!! But for other people👬 👭👫 they liked watching and hiding food for the moon bears 🌜 🐻. We hid fruits 🍌🍊🍎 and peanut butter, and some people like me, assembled bamboo, banana leaves, dog food and bananas together😋.!!! And what I learned was that I went out of my comfort zone (city🌆) and that I became one with nature🌱🌳🌲!!! Also so we learned how to be self responsible and how to take care of the environment.
Why I think the government keeps Cat Tien is because it is a park where mostly all the endangered animals go and it is a really large place😱. And to keep them so they don't get hurt 🔫 or die also to not make them endangered. We saw gibbons and saw a poster of me!!! I was holding a loris that I made (paper). It was when I was in 1st grade (when I had short hair💇).
2 1AND THE BEST PART!!! FOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDD🍚🍖🍙🍘🍔🍗🍛🍜🍞!!!!! Of course the food wasn't like this 🍔🍕🍖🍗 🍟or 🍜🍛🍝🍚🍤 we had bread with strawberry jam or blackberry jam 🍞🍓 (or bread🍞with egg🐔). And pork noodles, beef noodles and chicken noodles🐮🐷🐔🍜.
Even though the best part was food there was another good part. And it was the morning walk this was optional but I went. It was when you see the sunrise 🌅 and when you heard gibbons and the birds singing. It got a bit windy💨 at 5:30 so we had to wear log sleeved shirt😁 (or jacket). We stopped at a bridge and heard the gibbons.
Also there was a similar thing to the morning walk🏃🏻. It was the night hike🌉. It should actually be called the night walk because we didn't really hike😀... It was when we increased our night vision👀. We stopped when we couldn't see the track anymore. Then we laid down😶 and saw the stars✨✨✨✨💫. It was very pretty.
On the 2nd day at Cat Tien our group (group 2) went to a night safari🌉. We rode one of those night safari trucks with 2 people on one seat👭 👫👬(2 seats put together). Then the night safari began... First it was this happy mood because of all the chats and the light😸. But then it got darker so the chats got quieter and quieter. And we saw deers!!! Then a porcupine then a jack rabbit🐇 then a squirrel! And on the way back it was so dark and cold💨💨💨. It was so cold that I started shivering😳😵!!!
But after that ride it was the bonfire🔥 so it got warm pretty quickly. But it got too hot so I moved backwards. Because group 1 didn't come group 2 had to wait about 5 minutes😔!!! Then finally they came and finally we started our student led bonfire. We started of with a quiz show😋!!! That three or four students led. It was actually a riddle quiz show. After was a game that was kind of like simon says. Next was another riddle show. And then FINALLY OUR SCRIPT!!! It was a ghost story😱!!! It didn't go the way we were going to do it but WHO CARES!!! Because the people that did scripts got the marshmallows first (lol)!!! The marshmallows were golden brown!!! And it was sooooo goooooooooodddddddddddd!!!
And there was this nature passion thing and I was in photography📷!!! We laid on the ground to take good photos and if they weren't good we needed to lay down again. It actually was a scavenger hunt!!! And we needed to find stuff like something sharp🍴, something round and something that you can tie a knot but it all has to be a part of the ecosystem🌷.
AND THE WORST PART LEAVING CAT TIEN😭!!!!!!! Before we left we made sandwiches for the 3 hour ride I put in a lot of stuff 🍞🍗🐷🍀🍞!!! We rode the boat to get across the river and got on the bus 🚍 with a sad feeling😕. But soon enough the bus went CRAZY😆!😆!😆! We arrived at school about 3:00 we gave our parents a warm hugggggg😍.
