... When we reached the jetty we got onto the large coach which we would travel on for the next four hours stopping in the middle for lunch and a look around the local Sunday market. We then got off again at semminggo wildlife centre, which the guide didn't want to take us to but had to as it was part of the tour. He didn't want to take us there as he is working hard to get the orangs back into the wild and ...

It was a fun ...
... male hairy by the sounds of the trees and it's movements, however we were not able to see it as it was playing games with us! The route back to the long house was down the river. All three of is managed to do a synchronised fall in the river and only Kat got helped up from Alvin.. Pffft. After a shower in the river where we had little fish nibbling at our feet, we had a chicken and chips lunch (very bizarre after local cuisine for so many weeks). That afternoon ...
