Where I stayed
Arrived in Sibu early afternoon and found a place to stay directly opposite the docks called the Riverview hotel. The location is handy as I need to catch another early boat tomorrow, up river to Kapit, so I only have a 50 metre walk in the morning.
Visited the goddess of mercy Pagoda on the river which was build by wealthy Chinese merchants in the late 19th century
My hotel room is invested with mosquito's, my arch-enemies of the animal kingdom! Must of killed twenty plus of these hideous creatures before going to bed. I've become a bit of an expert at exterminating them, I've developed an accurate hand-clapping technique, I've had a lot of practice. Just hope I got all of them.
