We left early for Batang Ai today with only our overnight bags. I have stored the main luggage at the hotel in Kuching. We stopped en route at a nice market and my guide Kalik went shopping for our picnic tomorrow. I love the colours and smells of asian markets.
Up here in Batang Ai many local tribes live in “Long Houses” , a kind of long wooden house seperated into small dwellings. Our hotel can be only reached by boat and the rooms are laid out through the grounds just like long houses with 4 or 5 rooms per long house.
One of my clients, a lady on her own, is sick and I asked her if she needs a doctor but she said she was ok.
