Bako national park

pictures/bako01-1.jpg From Kuching I and Didier made a trip to nearby Bako national park. To get there we had to hire a boat, which had some trouble starting... pictures/bako02-1.jpg

pictures/bako05-1.jpg The boat left us on a deserted-looking beach with strange rocks and things that looked like you wouldn't want to step on them. pictures/bako07-1.jpg pictures/bako35-1.jpg

Walking a little along the beach we found camp headquarters and a canteen, where a couple of macaques jumped our table and stole our bisquits and a coke. In the forest there were also proboscis monkeys but I didn't get pictures of them. pictures/bako08-1.jpg pictures/bako09-1.jpg
