... was the obvious place to start. Those that know us well, know we will always go to the local markets.......these markets were slightly more challenging than most. Even the Fiji markets. Where they had live goats tethered to posts, were easier going than the Sandakan markets! The smell started at the entrance,m where fresh fruit and veges, along with dried and packaged foods, including all sorts and varieties of fish could be found. The meat sellers came ...

These Are The Days Of Lasers In The Jungle

... in these places. Simple huts made from tarpaulin on the edges of the fields, no water, no electricity housing 10-20 male workers. The palm oil is used in cooking oil manufacture and the cosmetic industry for soaps. It had rained heavily recently and the whole place looked an evil mixture of dengue fever and snakes.

The treats on offer were exciting - climbing a mountain, seeing Orangutans, turtles laying eggs, bats (including huge piles of guano), caves and more scuba diving in a tropical paradise. However, all of it seemed to come at a huge price. Because several of the places are protected there is very little accommodation near ...

... the way back to the lodge as the sun was starting to set we saw two crocodiles on the river bank! It was such a good experience and I don't think either of us could get over how lucky we had been with the wildlife seen, it was a shame neither of our cameras have brilliant zoom so we got a limited number of pictures but at least we'll always have the memory! Once back at the lodge we had an hour to wait till dinner so went and relaxed in the hammocks some more before tucking ...
