    ... newest gibbon to the group has a new ritual call that is heard all over the facility (including at our home). I can't describe it in words, and I intend on getting the entire sequence of calls onto video -- it's just hilarious -- with them making different ranges of tones, to a full on screaming to finish up the whole routine (as if they rehearsed).

    And on Friday morning, I was placed on duty to clean the Gibbons cages. These gibbons had ...

    ... next meal. Lunch was served from 11.30, but it was 11.00 when we got there, so our only choice was what was left over from the breakfast buffet, and as there wasn't really anyone to check with, we decided the only safe option which wouldn't have meat in it would be the three and a half hour old chips. We paid for them and tucked in. It's weird how chips can actually taste like bread, but somehow they managed it. To wash the chips down, we both got an ice cream too. After ...

I'm not sure quite how it happened but before I knew it, I'd signed up to join an overnight trip to a tribal village to ...

    Leaving the rainforest behind again we flew into the riverside city of Kuching. It had some interesting history, being ceded to two generations of British Raja's who developed and controlled the area for a number of years. They also have a fascination with cats, and numerous feline statues can be seen dotted around the city. We stayed at the lime tree hotel which as the name eludes to, had an obsession with the citrus fruit. From the zingy green ...

    Rain, wind and rivers

    A travel blog entry by amy.marvell on Mar 09, 2015

    Plan for today was to get back to the main land and travel to valentines ( one of the guides) village further east into Borneo. The main fact that we learnt today was that Borneo is the most humid country in the world. To start our journey we made the return one hour journey in the boats. It wasn't so nice this time as it was chucking it down with rain and the sea was really rough, so spray was hitting us in the boat. We were absolutely soaking wet!! We got the ...
