    ... know how many I had, as the drinks seemed to keep coming all night. Played some music from my jambox, and all had a good time -- even the power outage that lasted 1.5 hours didn't affect us. Felt no pain, and staggered back down the street by myself, but it was absolutely pitch dark (electricity was still out, and everybody was in bed already). Felt my way around, couldn't really see, plus being impaired didn't help, as ...

    ... a route that they run about every hour from Kuala Lumpur. Except, we booked the one that had something wrong with the airplane. After 40 minute delay, the crowd was called in, Haley & I at the front of the line, first ones down the jetway, only to be told "you must turn around and go back" -- I thought she was joking, considering that we're already delayed, but nope, she wasn't kidding.

    ... their bare hands I stood back. It's quite compelling viewing just watching them watching us. Eventually we moved into the jungle and that's where Edwin cartwheeled down the rope which I caught on video. In all I saw 5 or 6 of them of all different ages and sizes. It's such a privilege and something I definitely won't forget in a hurry. My photos are a bit rubbish I'm afraid but trust me it was ...

    Rain, wind and rivers

    ... half an hour on the way back we had seen that it had grown about a centimetre in that time. When we returned all hot and sweaty, we went down to the river by the house, where we did some washing and tried to feed the fish. Now everyone is chatting and waiting for dinner! After dinner we got a dance and gong performance by one of the older tribes woman and then a tribes men. We all joined on dancing women when the lady danced and men with then man. It was all great ...
