Rainy season cruise

The generous January rains have filled the rivers in swirling, eddying currents, over-running banks and rushing into the quiet lakes. Leaves on the forest clad river banks sparkle in the sun which soon follows the sharp down pours. Its spring here and the trees are a-flower. Horn bill fledglings are heard calling in the trees and proboscis monkeys appear in large troups rummaging in the trees for fruit. An unlucky one, surprised by the Rahai'i Pangun, missed his footing and plunged in the water.

Our guest, at the end of her cruise, chose an unusual method of transport home!
