Arrived in Kuching at 5am, after a reasonable journey, still asleep and in the middle of nowhere. Got ripped off by the taxi driver before checking into the hostel and sleeping until 10:30. Grabbed the top bunks to be as close to the fans as possible as it was a sauna in the dorm.

Met up with Julia (she had flown in from KL yesterday, didn't fancy climbing a mountain) and headed out to see the sights. Took a stroll along the river front but being Chinese New Year everything of interest in town was closed, plus I was still aching from the climb so made the most of being in a city and spent the rest of the day going from coffee shop to Internet cafe.

To break up the infinite loop we decided to check out the cinema and saw the new Jet Li movie, Fearless, which was an interesting diversion for a couple of hours. Feeling hungry Julia took us to a restaurant she had been to yesterday and it may have been expensive but it was delicious. Roast lamb followed by more coffee and creme brulee. One of the most impressive meals in ages.
