waterywednesday: outboard engines in Sarawak, Borneo.
There are many rivers in Sarawak, Borneo. In the upper tributaries, there are many long boats powered by out board engines.
At Mulu, Sam and I traveled a lot by these boats. We sat on the short planks across the boat. It was quite hot in the mid day sun. Once, after a long gruesome hike of four hours and with a heavy backpack, I couldn't get out from the boat to the much higher jetty. I couldn't even get up as the boat was wobbly. Some handsome gentlemen came and helped this damsel in distress. One held each hand. I was in cloud nine. LOL
