Indonesian Governors' wives enjoy cruise

A sparkling December day welcomed a group of Indonesian Governors' wives to Tangkiling for a cruise aboard the Rahai'i Pangun on the Rungan River.

The wife of Kalteng Governor, Bpk Teras Narang, with Ibu Fauzi, wife of the Jakarta Governor, led the party onto the boat for their short cruise around Pulau Kaja, a river island used by the Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Foundation for the pre-release of orangutans in the later stages of rehabilitation. Accompanied by Aldrianto of the BOS Foundation, the women were delighted to see a group of mothers and babies at one of the feeding stations on the island.

While cruising, the guests enjoyed a feast of local delicacies, including marinated giant river prawns, lemon grass sambal, local grilled river fish, steamed river fish in coconut and turmeric, and the jungle fern, kolokai, cooked with mushrooms.
