        ... chairs, but it had great food, cold beer and we sat with the locals looking out on to the harbour. The food bill came to $15 (£7.50) and the beer, never mind! The walk back up the hill passed quite quickly as we watched frantically for missing drain covers in the dark to prevent a heavy fall and testing the travel insurance. We saved $3 on the taxi fare and paid $10 for two ice creams on our return to the hotel. Debbie said they were worth it, I equated it to three taxi ...

        ... dense jungle. We were treated on this occasion to a mother and baby Orangutang feeding on a Pomelo Tree. Of all the animals we had seen on this trip, nothing compared to watching these creatures in their natural habitat. We continued on to Sandakan and our stay at the Sabah Hotel, this really lived up to its billing by Robert. A large place on the edge of town, a huge swimming pool, large rooms and a bed large enough to take Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (read no more into ...

        We were up at 5.30am all excited about our early morning river cruise in search of Pygmy elephants as some had been spotted by another group the day before. Sailing along we say several different species of hornbills, an eagle and a crocodile sunbathing on the bank. Apart from that we had been cruising for about 1 hour and no sign of the larger animals we sought even where they were seen yesterday. A bit despondent the boat was turned around and we started to head ...

        ... fantastic. We all ate way too much and all for the equivalent of $10. On the way back from the restaurant we dropped Omar off at his village where he was going to spend the night with his wife and little boy. Once we got back to our rooms, we went back out onto our balcony to watch the lightning that was lighting up the sky. Sarah joined us to have a beer and watch the show. After our beer we all headed to bed as we have a 7:00 start planned for tomorrow as we head off to turtle ...
