I always think that aeroplanes are a sure fire herway Clickof egetting a cold toor worse and being hunted up then streaming cold and followed by hacking cough is best done when the temperature is below the mid 30,s but at least we are in very smart spacious surroundings in Borneo. The flight from Jakarta was via batik which is supposed to be the more upmarket version of lion air but it just proves howawfullion air must be. Airlines seem to be inarace to see who can makeryanair look smart. Anyway the flight was on time, Mandy miss read the time to 4pm departure when that was arrival time, a good job she likes to get to the airport early, nobody noticed our slightly late arrival. The wheelchair was taken in their stride and was there at the door on arrival, full marks for that. The baggage has also managed to follow us so touch would and fingers crossed on that. The hotel I booked as being by Sheraton turned out to be a Marriott which produces would worst hotels in my experience but this one was very new, shiny and lots of usual Asian smiles but the pool was tin and seemed to be next to some industrial plant and there were only four sunbeds plus the doors to the pool or incredible iteep slope required special request to open. Gave up after the first night and looked at the other top hotel the platinum hotel and conference centre. I gave up on the cheap as chips option with super reviews as that had landed us at the Marriott four points and went by taxi to see this hotel, I decided to go upmarket to executive suite which has given us a really superb room at about sixty quid anight, yes the Marriott was a bargain for workers at twenty or less but if you are mostly on holiday skittle bit of bargain luxury doesn't go amiss. They are trying to get us liked to go to see the orangutan and sun gear sanctuary, booked up for tomorrow but we shall try for Sunday or Monday. The main road seems to run outside so I should be in a good position Monday onwards for truck filming and the uses all pass by, the local ones are the 5k minibuses., I think theageof tickets is dead, lucky to have got them inbatam last year. The Jakarta stored vakuecardlooked like something you could use in many countries not just on transport. Welltry and get to some other out of city spots, the locals aren't very much into wildlife , walking or general culture, just making slot of noise en masses at times? Thankfully the hotel we arenowin has masses of space to get our own haven in the quiet? Must charge iPad battery it is running out edit.
