I am leaving. Today I will load up Gaby, and pedal into the Malaysian jungle. The city of Bandar Seri Begawan is a tease, with small patches of rainforest surrounded by littered neighborhoods. It is quiet here when you least expect it, after 8 pm shopping malls and restaurants become completely deserted, making the only sign of life the booming midnight call to prayer. The shape of Brunei is quite odd in that to get to Temburong rainforest in Brunei I must first pedal through 100 km of dense jungle in Sarawak Malaysia. The map makes it look pretty remote and I am not sure what to expect after passing through the border. You are all in my thoughts and as always, I will touch base again soon!
