Hi John!

Well, Im back! I had a great time in Borneo really fascinating.
Kuching was interesting, but I dont think we spent enough time
there. When we left to go on the river, there were too many
people for the longboat, so we travelled to the village in a bus.
The village was fascinating. I loved the longhouse, but there
werent enough rooms for all of us to sleep there, so we had to
sleep in tents. The first night was great, but I ate too much
delicious Iban food, and so I felt ill the next morning! The
second night wasnt as good because there wasnt enough food
for everyone. After that there was a jungle trek lots of
interesting things there, but not enough time to see everything.

Anyway, Ill see you next weekend and show you all my photos.
