This probably should have been my first post on Borneo. On our trip there we stayed at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge – deep in the primary rainforest – which is a rainforest that has not been logged.
It was a remarkable and remote place, with trees that are only rivaled in size by the redwoods of California.
It had a very Jurassic feel to it, with the swirling mists, wild animal calls and abundance of wildlife. Definitely not the kind of place that you want to get lost in, vast and unyielding to the untrained Canadian.
A few shots.
Magnificent. One hopes that tourism can sustain and protect it.
The path is over that way. Don’t worry about the leeches, they are friendly.
The way to our bungalow in Borneo.
Our hut happened to be one that the Royals stayed in. I guess “Wills” does like to rough it. They are building brand new ones in a hurry after that visitor – quite opulent.
It is great that the spring is finally here. I really do not need another winter, ever. That being said, it can be beautiful. From a night on snowshoes.
Hong Kong, down a little side street stuck between beautiful brand new buildings. I wish I would have had time to go in.
At the base of the tower.
These people were camping out for some event at the tower the next morning (I think a pop band at a radio station or something).
These guys were just enjoying the sites.
