KK to Limbung

... Malaysia. While walking around looking for a place to stay we run across a laundry so we drop off some washing. Accommodation found we set out to explore. We had asked at the hotel where we might find a beer shop and were pointed to the nearby market. It turns out they smuggle grog in from the duty free port of Labuan so you could get just about anything your heart desires at very cheap prices. A few beers, the room has a fridge, a bottle of vodka and a few cans of mixers and we are ...

... a couple little things - hopefully that will be enough to tide me over until tomorrow morning's breakfast. Came back and took a long shower. Also, my hostel provides towels! Yay! So that was lovely. Now I'm in my room listening to my poor dorm mate have a very serious relationship conversation with her boyfriend back home. It sounds kind of like she's on a trip like me, although hers is more like four months and she happened to start dating someone right before she left. He ...

Made in China!!? We saw ...

Day 53. The same weather greeted us today as had yesterday. In the face of the monsoon-esque rain there was little we could do but spend much of the day indoors again. It seemed a shame to while away the hours inside, but our ideas of golf, river cruises and zoo were too weather-dependent. Determined for the same not to happen tomorrow, we planned our itinerary for the next few days. Once again, the rain stopped ...

... of a few very short stretches, nearly the entire path is uphill (downhill on return). The night before you start, you are sleeping at sea level (well, 150 feet above since we were on the 12th floor of our hotel), so the altitude is almost certainly going to be felt in one way or another.
The first day you start hiking at 9 or 10 am and have to hike 6km, going from 2800m above sea level to 3300m. The first 2-3 km are ...
