KL Quickie

I’m in the cheap-o airport in Kuala Lumpur waiting for them to start check-in for my flight to Jakarta. I can tell that I’m in SE Asia. The airport is full of the gap year English backpackers. I last ran into this crowd in Fiji and probably wont have to really deal with them again …

Bye Bye Borneo

Tomorrow I’m off to Jakarta. I hope to be in Indonesia for two weeks going through Java, Bali, and then a few days in East Timor. I came to Borneo not really knowing anything about the island. Next to nothing about the political divisions on the island, the history, the people, and very little about …

Still in Kota Kinabalu

I was supposed to go to the park today, but the guide I was going to go with canceled on me. I’ll be here another day I guess. I have made good use of my time in KK. I’m working on a really interesting project for when I’m in Jakarta. It is something I can …

Sarawak 2

I had to come into town to book my ticket to Mulu National Park. I still need to book a bed, but that shouldn’t be a problem. The New Year rush has died down and I’m willing to sleep anywhere. The place I’m staying outside of Miri is very nice. My room is inside a …

Sarawak

I am in Miri, Malaysia. The trip from Bandar Seri Begwan took about five hours to travel maybe 50 miles. I had to transfer onto five different buses and take a small boat across a river. It is very obvious the reliance Brunei has on oil once you get out of the capital. There is …
