Please don’t blame it on the director. Blame it on the irresponsible travellers and tourists alike.

There was trepidation in the beginning whether to immediately plunge into the lake or maybe drench myself little by little. I was already enjoying just dipping my feet into the water at the edge of the bamboo raft while we were resting after a few minutes of pulling the rope (which is quite painful to the back) that would bring us to the other end of the lake.
