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. They are not the boats that the students and teachers stayed on, but they looked just like them. Ally’s teacher took this picture from onboard their boat. They stayed on the boats for three days and two nights.
The food was one of Ally’s favorite parts of the trip. It was made fresh right on the boats by the crew. They probably ate 3 whole watermelons every day. Aren’t they pretty clever in the way that they cut the watermelons!?
This is a baby orangutan. She will leave her mom after 6 years.
This orangutan didn’t get too close to Ally, but she was able to capture a video of him stealing a lady’s camera and spanking one of her friends on the butt.
This is the turtle that Ally released into the ocean. She named it Patent Pending. FYI – Only 1 in 100 baby turtles will survive.
