Borneo, 5.30pm - Day 2

We are on the move again.

After having a few hours to settle into our hotel and meeting two of our guides we aremaking our way to a cultural evening.

There are a few tired looking faces but the thought of a good meal and a bed to sleep in tonight it is still smiles all round.

Sarah and myself ventured out in the city and found a fantastic food market. Bowls of chillis and fruit and veg of all kind.

We treated ourselves to a coconut drink. Oily and texture and luke warm it didn’t tickle our taste buds as much as we had expected but it was refreshing in the heat.

We also bought a bag of rambutan fruit for the team. Ramut meaning hair and tan stands for the seed in the middle.

In true tropical style the heavens have now opened.. Looks like we’ve got a damp night ahead of us.
