We made our way down from the spectacular Buddhist edifice and headed off to a local restaurant for a great meal!! Javanese cooking!!
We drove a long way, through mountains with dense tropical rainforest, past rice terraces. The volcanoes loomed in the distance.
As we pulled out of Kota Kinabalu the sun was low in the sky creating a psychedelic glow.
We slid along the coast as I looked over at the shrouded mountains and jungle and thought about orangutans.
The sun set on Borneo!
A lot of wealth, art and effort is poured into Mosques, Temples and Cathedrals in order to prove their doctrines are real. I’ve walked around the ruins of many.
They are so beautiful even when their doctrines are long dead.
A city in the midst of tropical rainforest.
Funny costumes (supposed to be tradition warrior) dance, music, theatre and tourist greetings – fascinating.
I love the gaudy colours and art of these Chinese Temples.
Most of the life seemed to be in the water!!
These Kings sure like to splash the cash. Talk about gaudy!!
It certainly was a splash of opulence.
