Up and at ‘em early. We’re off to Indonesia, but first a delicious breakfast at Alex’s place. Probably the last western style food I’ll get for at least a week or two until I reach Bali. The road out of Kuching is a big highway but it gradually got smaller and smaller toward the border … Continue reading Day 408 to 411 – Kuching to Banjarmasin – The Crash!
