    ... anything like this before, although there were also many people here for their second, third, fourth or more time. We got chatting with a lovely lady from Songlines magazine who was here covering the festival, poor lassie had to get on a plane on the Monday morning back to London, but then again, her work sent her to the rainforest, so not all bad!

At the hostel, they'd told us that the ...

Celebrations were centred around the village Longhouse (essentially a wooden row of terraced houses sharing a communal patio).

We then continued our journey in the mini can stopping a couple of times once at a hospital for a toilet stop, we didn't quite undertand, and once for lunch where we tried Sarawak laksa a rice noodle dish with chilli in a broth. It was really nice but many found it really hot. Back on the road to the village, once we arrived we had to cross a narrow bridge made ...
