    ... It was worth a try.

    I walked in and there were many desktops and laptops lying about, some of which had clearly been repaired. I explained the situation to the proprietor and he said no problem he could read the hard drive – and he immediately pulled out the necessary connector and hooked it up! To my great relief all my files looked to be intact, and I spent the next hour backing up the files onto my external drive. As he was closing, I told him I would return ...

    ... constant lightning and it felt like strobe lighting. After about 90 mins we got the shout of ‘Turtle time’. We headed across the island torches in hand and found one mother laying about 90 eggs. The kids were able to get close and you could see the sand nest she had dug and the eggs filling it.

Chris and Beth even sneakily managed to buy birthday postcards without my knowing!

We had a quick breakfast and quickly walked the few kilometres down the ...

    ... long after! Once we finished watching the last orang at the feeding platform, we headed to the nursery to see the younger orangs. When we got there, we could see three babies hanging around the main viewing area, but not long later, when a keeper turned up with food, another four babies turned up because they have access to the whole sanctuary and can come and go as they please. Some of the babies formed a little group and were like the orang Mafia, ...

    ... It was a fairly easy decision for us considering how little we saw on the first trek, Sugi had also mentioned that we would be hunting for wild cats if we chose the boat, deep down he probably couldn't be ***** to walk. We made our way down the river again to the passage we went on our very first tour during the day. The boat slowed once again, in the pitch black the atmosphere becomes a lot more creepy, just the spotlight and a quiet mumble of the motor. We saw another ...
