But ablutions aside, it was great going for jungle walks and sunset & night river boat cruises to see the things that go bump (as well as brrr, squelsh, ssss, and kwaaak) in the night. We got to see all sort of birds we hadn't seen before (white-eared Kingfisher, grey headed Fish Eagle etc) and plenty of new creepy crawlies. There was also one particular Orang Utan which we now concur is probably a cardboard cut-out since he was in the same tree 2 days in a row - hmmm...
Rob spotted a rare bird, that caused the guide great palpitations of gushy happiness - and now we can't remember what it was... oh well.
We splashed out a bit and stayed at an "Inn" (yes, there was space) which had television ... only to see the scrolling red bar on CNN about a coup that was happening in Thailand. And that's exactly where our flight ticket took us the next day...
