After arriving at the airport in Kuching, we were strolling along the waterfront, thats the promenade along the dirty brown river here. It was just an relaxed afternoon, with a bit of sightseeing, unfortunally most of the little shops were closed.
The next day we had very bad weather, but decided then still to go to Bako, an National-Park. In between two heavy showers we sat on an open boat with only a sunroof and got only a little wet...
Already on the way from the reception to our bungalow we could spot 3 Vipers. An experience my mum wouldn´t mind, if she had missed it ;-)
On the way to a lookoutpoint we could already spot some "Nasenaffen"! On the Nightwalk we saw a black scorpion, Treefrogs, a view big ugly Insects like Crickets (Heuschrecken), a flying Squirel (Flugeichhörnchen).
On the second day my dad and I did the "Liittle Loop Walk". It took us 3 !/2hours and was pretty exiting, up and down, stepping on treeroots so we idn´t get wet feed, while the footpath was like a little creek from that rain during the night. On a rock in a ittle creek we past, a scorpion was waiting for us, so that we couldt make our picture.
