So I'm heading home today, its been a fairly uneventful couple of days since I did the mountain, for a few reasons, firstly after climbing up and down said mountain I couldn't walk. On wednesday I managed to haul myself to Manunik (the smallest island in the Tungku Abdul Rahman national park) with Kirsten (who appears to have changed race after 3 days in the sun!), Fiona, Selina and Annabel. We just chilled out pretty much, I went parasailing which was good fun then we took the boat back at 3. We got a suprise when we got back - George, Ahman, Lynn and Amoy had all come to suprise us (after telling us they couldn't meet us in KK) so we all went for dinner and drinks in the bar downstairs, we also had some mango shisha in a hookah - Selina said it made her feel like the catipillar from Alice in Wonderland. I didn't tell her but I think she looks a bit like him.
The day after I woke up feeling pretty rough, just really sick with a bad stomach ache, I still went with Kirsten and Selina to get their tattoos - Selina got a moon and 3 stars and Kirsten got Cinta (the Malay word for love and the name of her favourite Orang-Utan) tattooed on her wrist. We went foir some lunch but by then I felt horrible so I went to bed for the rest of the day. The next day I still felt bad so went to the clinic, the doctor thinks its probably just from climbing the mountain and then having to much sun so I have a few different pills to take just to settle my stomach but I still feel crap and a half! My flight this evening is at 6 and I won't get into Heathrow until 6am (GMT) on sunday. Great!
Anyway, I better end this thing now. I just want to say to everyone I've met out here - you are all amazing and I will never forget any of you! Please stay in touch!
This really has been the best 2 months of my life, working with Orangutans is something that I have always dreamed of doing and I can't believe its over, I only hope that I will be able to do more to help these amazing animals in future! I also hope that the grand plans for the Sun bears go ahead! They really are such beautiful animals and need so much help! I will be doing my best to raise awareness for them back home!
I can't quite believe my time here is over, I feel so at home in Malaysia and hope to come back one day (hopefully when I am a high flying Primatologist! Fingers crossed!) I'm not sure how I'm going to cope back in England not seeing Orangutans every day! I will miss them all so much!
Right I'm off now! BYEEEEEE
