Hello Alex! We just arrived yesterday in the evening, after 36 hours in airports and planes, coming back from Manado. It was great, with smalls trecks in forests near volcanos, but less magic than travelling in Borneo with you.

Thanks again for every things you managed for us, with your experience and your friends. We'll never forget that. I 'll try to send you soon pictures and film on a DVD, and I need you write me the good adress for that .
