Borneo

Ally has made several attempts to write about her trip to Borneo. Unfortunately, every time she sits down to write about it, her efforts are derailed. After tonight’s attempt, I realized that she still has too many experiences and memories swimming around in her head, making it difficult for her to put them into written words. So, she’s decided to post some of her favorite pictures instead.

These are klotoks (traditional wooden river boats).  These are not the boats that we stayed on, but they looked just like them.  My teacher took this picture from our boat.  We stayed on our boats for three days and two nights.

The food was one of my favorite parts of the trip.  It was made and eaten on the boats.  We probably ate 3 whole watermelons every day (look at the way they cut them into arrow shapes)!

This orangutan, fortunately, didn't grab me, but she took some lady's camera and spanked one of my friends on the butt.

This is the turtle that I released into the ocean.  I named it Patent Pending.

    Oh,Ally, what a marvelous experience! I watch those things on TV and wish I could help a few dozen or so of those cute little turtles, or maybe more! I think the sea turtles are some of my favorites . So glad you could go ,,, Love, Grandma. K
