Our rental car excursion did not turn out as planned. The rental car company were obviously working on Borneo time which meant they did not show up at 9am with the car, nor did they turn up at 10am...The resort came up with a solution, they would give us the resort car for the day. It all sounded great until we saw the car, at least 20 years old, no air-conditioning( which is a necessity not a luxury here) and the mileage clock stopped at 180,000 which meant it had about 500,000 miles on it. Anyway onwards and upwards, another adventure we decided to go with it and take it up the mountains!
Firstly we drove north of the city to a luxury resort called the Rasa Ria for a nosey around then we started the two hour drive to Mount Kinabalu National park, up very steep and winding roads
Off to Sandakan tomorrow to see the orangutans, going to spend the whole day on Saturday in the sanctuary...
