Today we were supposed to see wildlife in Snuol, a sanctuary meant for this, but, instead of that, we have been up and down hills across an area highly intervened by the human hand.
We were expecting to see lots of birds and, with a little bit of luck, some mammals too, but we could only hear the birds and the only mammals we saw were people doing regular life in their houses, built on both sides of the road.
Many times, it looked like the desert; the wood is being careless cut and there are bunches of branches ready to go all the way long. Many electric towers and the products in the shops reveal the proximity of the Vietnamese border.
Maybe Snuol Wildlife Sanctuary is a real one, so well preserved and away from touristic intruders that we didn’t even notice it from the road, but the truth is that we thought it would be different.
Our route is a lot hillier than before and we spend long whiles just focussing on keeping on. Fortunately, the weather has been on our side and some clouds have been shading the sun most of the time until we have arrived to Keo Seima, where we will stay tonight.…
