It is a very affluent business orientated city with a lovely river front with fascinating markets and museums.
We met our sole trekking companion - Andrew from Canada - and after two nights in Kuching we were to fly further up Borneo for the jungle adventure. ( no roads )
After a couple of flights in pretty small planes we met our guide - Jo Harry ( you may call me Jo) who explained that he was half Head Hunter ( Borneo) and half Pirate (Filipino) - that he had had only three people die on his previous tours and that whilst he didn't want any nasty injuries, he really liked cuts and bruises so that we would all remember our time in the jungle. Blimey we thought, said nothing and wondered what on earth we had let ourselves in for.
We spent all night re-packing - niceties such as deodorant and shampoo were jettisoned in favour of extra sticking plaster and insect repellent.
