Off to Parts Unknown ... travel blog

I woke up yesterday and found that Azi is still sick, so I hopped on the train to the airport and catch a flight to Borneo, specifically to Kota Kinabalu in the state of Sabah. I got to Borneo and figured I'd go all the way east and then work my way back to KK. (I probably could have flown directly to the east coast if I'd thought it out a bit, but that would have been too easy.) Basically, I've spent the last 2 days organizing tours and in transit, so there's not much to report. However, I feel the need to mention briefly the hotel I found upon arrival in Sandakan. My US$8 room with bath came complete with a DVD player and free access to the owner's fairly extensive DVD collection. Also, for US$1 per hour, he would set up a laptop in your room to do internet. I know this may not seem like a big deal to you folks at home, but you have no idea what a treat it is to sit in your own space and watch a movie and surf the web.
