Heavy downpour overnight, but woke to steamy morning and the bustle of the regular Sunday market just down from our hotel. You think of anything and it was there! Spent a couple of hours fighting our way through the crowds and haggling for some bargains, returning to our hotel just before the next downpour to checkout and head to the airport to catch our flight to Miri
When we reached our hotel in Miri we were greeted by our very enthusiastic guide Rony. He is an absolute delight and extremely informative, with a smile to die for. We all met for a briefing and headed out to a local seafood restaurant, organized by Rony, for dinner. As predicted all the others on the tour are English and, even though they are English, they seem a good bunch! With a few characters amongst them and the token one or two whingers as well!
Now we're off to bed as we have an early start in the morning for our flight to Mulu National Park. It will be 4-5 days before we can post again when we emerge from the jungle....
