Excellent tour, and the driver was really great. Real nice english accent. It is a pity that natural luminescence is presented as a common thing. That place deserves a tutorial about chemiluminescence, showing how the worms emit light and the chemistry involved. I couldn't find any picture with the worms glowing, or about their origin and behavior. It could be a nice chemistry class.
