Pulau Pangkor, Feb 25th, 2011

What is there to do in paradise? Well, K sat between the pool and the sea and did her homework while I jogged on the beach and hiked up a trail I found behind the old Chinese shrine on the hillside behind the hotel. I hiked for maybe an hour, ducking between spiky palms that I remembered from my barefoot childhood, swatting mosquitoes, and sweating through the still, humid rainforest. I reached the top of the hill, and descended a different trail, which took me to a small sandy cove from which the hotel was partially visible. I took photos of the hotel and of some driftwood, and headed back. Back at the hotel I found monkeys raiding peoples balconies looking for food, so watched them for half an hour before dinner.

During dinner the lady at the table next to ours left her plate with the empty shells of prawns on it while she went to get some more food. A hornbill flew down and starting eating the prawn sheels, so we helpfully watched and took photos, while the sun set in the background.
