Home of Freshwater Eels

A Stop at a Dam

The dam provided a bed for the cross-island highway that we traveled.

Home of the Eels

We stopped here because they wanted us to see the freshwater eels that live here.
Our native guide holds a bread roll in the water to bait the eels.

One of the Sun Princess tourists documents the event while a local boy looks on.

These eels are not very long, but they are pretty wide. Are you surprised to see that the water source for this pond behind the dam is a waterfall?
