... She was lovely but she did speak very slowly and her voice sounded a lot older than she looked! The rest of the journey also went very well and in 3.5 hours we were in Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei Darrussalam. It was dark when we arrived although it was only 19:15. One thing we do miss are the long light nights of the Scottish summer- here there's around 12 hours of daylight and that's it. The Boston lady asked if she could look at ...
