And finally, a few pictures from the air (I took a helicopter ride). Here the natural arch in the Rock Islands, Palau.

This is the amazing jellyfish lake. You can see the jellyfish concentrated in the upper right corner of the lake (the slightly yellow tinge); apparently they migrate from east to west of the lake every day. The larger dots are people snorkeling and swimming towards the jellyfish (scuba diving is prohibited, one reason being that the lower layers of the lake contain poisonous gas that can be absorbed through the skin…)

The jellyfish, in the absence of predators, have evolved not to sting (or rather, their sting is not really dangerous or noticeable). It is quite bizarre to float through them. They feel nice and squishy.

 The helicopter pilot did a low pass through this "valley". Very remarkable (the passenger in the back seat screamed). It is reminiscent of the landscape in Avatar.

We saw a manta ray from the helicopter.

Here is another remarkable sight: the Milky Way Lagoon. A beautiful small cove with a bottom of white clay/mud, apparently created by snails feeding on limestone.

 The water has an amazing color, and it's fun to smear the mud all over yourself (also supposed to be good for your health and your skin...)

 This was Palau. Awesome diving and snorkeling and boating and flying. Wonderful holiday.
