Tuesday, Mar 6th, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia


On the way out of Brunei, we visited their Museum of Technology and drove to the gates of the Royal Palace.  But the best part of the day was the Subway-like tuna sandwiches on wheat bread and slushes we had for lunch.  I know I've been a bit hard on this part of the trip, and it has nothing to do with the Bruneian people.  We've had nothing but great experiences with the locals, and do admire their cheerfulness and hard work meeting our requests.

But I just can't shake the feeling that they deserve a greater share of the wealth of the country.

As we peered through the front gate of the Royal Palace (at 1,788 rooms, 371 bathrooms, and seven floors, it's the largest residence in the world), we were told that the Sultan opens it up for three days a year to his people for a tour and catered lunch.

A short flight to Kota Kinabalu, Sabay to begin the jungle portions of the adventure.
