Saturday, Mar 10th, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia


I know it must seem like we're hopping all over Malaysia, and we are.  Today, we flew back to the hotel we were at four days ago - across the island just north of Brunei.  Tomorrow, we fly to the island of Sumatra (Indonesia), lose a few of our travelers, and pick up a few more.

On our way back here, we stopped by a palm oil collection station, and learned more about the industry which has decimated the orangutan natural habitats in Malaysia.  The vegetable oil has found its way into so many products we consume, wear, or use for fuel.

Further toward the airport, we visited a chinese temple sporting 13,000 lanterns, and a great view of the surround bay.  A well-positioned rest stop on a very long drive.

Lunch was held at an English tea house atop a majestic hill (the scones and mini-sandwiches were welcomed). 

Before we gather for the first evening of the next portion of the trip (Indonesia), I'll try to find the time to ponder what Malaysia has presented to us.  I fear these posts are turning into more show then tell.

To see all of the photos (if the internet gods are good to me) taken today, click on Saturday, Mar 10th, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.
