... is in Lahad Datu, but hey what do I know-this lady just spoke to a local right? So we jumped in a taxi from Semporna and arrived in Tawau at 8.30pm. Straight to the hotel and up early with the hopes of going to the valleys. However I am sure you have guessed how this story goes .

How VERY VERY annoying

The K.M.Tawindo was scheduled to leave for Nanukan at 12noon but left 15mins late. It only took 1½hrs but cost a whopping 75 ringgits {£15}.

I wanted to take a public bus to the airport but Krystoff didn't want to take a chance getting to the airport late. Well he had a point, since the local transport rarely leaves "on time." They usually ...

... on the floor for me and I crashed out.

Not a great night's sleep with dogs barking, mosquitoes and prayer calls from the mosque early in the morning. Justin made me breakfast before taking me into town to sort some stuff out, had lunch a local Warung which served Sulawesi food, a sort of beef soup with rice packaged in leaves. My ferry was leaving in the evening and at 5pm Justin took me to the port. I said goodbye to his wife and kids and thanked them for they had done for ...
