  Borneo [Malaysia and Indonesia] - July 2009

In July, during my stay in Sipadan (Borneo, Malaysia), I had prepared two short underwater videos, thinking to post them in stride. But the wifi from the resort where I was connecting broke down, and the videos stayed on Vimeo. So, I had forgotten them! Here they are…

These are two short "raw" sequences. I'll give them below, just to wait, waiting for the small underwater montages that I prepare for future posts ...

1) Shark Prayer

The first shows my buddy Linda, hands clasped over a shark. It was his way of swimming. Always very calm, as in prayer, with his palms against each other.

2) Express tortoise

In the second, I film a turtle, not shy at all, who swims right on me and almost jostles me to continue his journey! In Sipadan, turtles are everywhere.

A puff of nostalgia invades me by seeing these images.

I diveed there a whole week, staying on the neighboring island of Mabul. I would have stayed there a week more. Sipadan is, by far, the most amazing diving spot I have ever seen in any of the sites where I dive in Asia.
