The plane lands in Sandakan. Here I am in Borneo! The airport is tiny. I quickly get my bag, buy a coupon at the taxi counter at the exit and go directly to Sepiloka few kilometers away, where the Orangutan Rehabilitation Center is located.

I plan to spend only one night at Jungle Resort, spotted on the internet, close to the center.

I'm doing the right thing. As much as the garden in the middle of which the said resort is located is splendid, with wooden footbridges, cute pond and luxuriant tropical vegetation maintained with care, as much as my room has 50RM is basic... The contrast is violent, when we disembark from the luxurious Peruti Pacific, that's for sure !

No problem, I came for the monkeys. It is 11am. It gives me time to rest a little and to have lunch quietly before the meal time of the orangutans, at 15h.
