Wednesday, Mar 7th, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

Greetings!

The tallest mountain in Malaysia is in the middle of the thickest jungle, and after a two-hour drive up steep roads in a large bus - you'll find the Kinabalu National Park.    We sped there quickly this morning in order to fit in the long canopy walk amidst some huge trees, and a visit to their orchid garden and butterfly reserve.

This travel group is beginning to work as a real team to accomplish the most adventurous day-trips possible, and still have a lot of fun.  We're beginning to know each other's luggage, food needs, and shopping preferences.  Of course, we're still asking about favorite trips and memorable guides.

 Our guide for this trip, Pam Schewe, does an excellent job of den-mothering us when altered schedules, unexpected surprises, and mother nature just throw us a curve.  We follow her everywhere, and she's proven she'll get us through safely.

A late dinner on the waterfront just out from our hotel, and we returned to pack for tomorrow's 6;30am flight to an orangutan reserve.  We'll be there for a couple of days, and then fly back here.
