7/10 - To Kapit

There are no roads to Kapit, the only way is by boat. There are a lot of boats available throughout the day. However at just before 8.30am, there seemed to be only one departing, so we got tickets and proceeded to find a space for our bags inside the cabin rather than on the top!

The express boats look like jet planes with the wings cut off, and they go nearly as fast and sound nearly as loud. Nicknamed 'flying ...

Now that we're out of the tourist areas, we're searching for something real (despite the longhouse disaster). Excited by the idea that Borneo is a wild and untouched place (a tad romantic perhaps) we longed for some interactions with people (and not just our fellow travellers, nice though they are).

We talked with our couch surf hosts in Kuching about this. They've lived in Sarawak for 2 years and both have jobs that ...

Everything was catered to 'the west': toilets, breakfasts...restaurants that locals would NEVER eat in...tacky tourist shops...etc. We're away from that now.

Not many SE Asia ...

The next morning we went to the wharf and took our express boat, which is really long and shaped liked a torpedo, down the first part of our journey up the Rejang River to Kapit. The Rejang River is Malaysia's longest river of over 640km, but we weren't planning on doing the whole journey. Not sure how far we went, but it took 3 hours to get to Kapit in a boat that travels around 55km/hour.

Along the route, we saw a number of longhouses ...
