Blog 7: winding down - returning home
“We started the long 7 hour boat trip quite early. I’m going to miss our host. They were so friendly and so sweet.”
I really noticed all the logs along the river bank on this trip. Apparently they are from the illegal logging that took place before the nearby border crossing to Malaysia closed. The logs are now unable to go through so they lie wasted by the river, or clogging it from within.
“When we have arrived at Lanjak we went straight to Putussibau and checked in at a hotel near the WWF station. For dinner, we went to a restaurant where we watched a dance performance.”
“Went to dinner in the same yummy restaurant as before. Delicious food. So glad I could eat something other than fish!”
“Witnessed a pretty groovy concert. Saw some wonderful girls dance to some really catchy music. They were great!”
“After that, Nugie sang a song about our trip, the song was amazing and what makes it more amazing is the fact that he made it spontaneously. All the information about the trip was in the song, it was really good!! Other performance by the people from WWF is also performed and I loved it as I now know their other abilities.”
“It was a great way to end the trip!”
