While we were in the city we did a sunset river cruise, spent a …

Irgendwie erinnert uns die Stadt ein bisschen an Singapur, nicht wegen der modernen Architektur, sondern wegen der vielen ...

Kuching (and Family Hurrah!)

... dolphins whilst chugging past the mangroves. I really wasn't expecting for us to see any at all but we did! Only a few glimpses on a few occasions as they only surfaced a couple of times before diving down again. Managed to grab a few pics and Tom managed to get a video though so happy with that. Later on along the river we saw Proboscis monkeys in the trees. The sun was just going down so you couldn't see them that well but they were there never the less. We left the mouth of ...
