     I managed to squeeze in a weekend stop-over in Brunei on route to Hong-Kong. The small sultanate on the Island of Borneo where Kalimantan (Indonesia) and East-Malaysia takes up the main part, is worth a visit. Bandar Seri Begwan the capital of this small sultanate is seen in two days as most of it can be covered by walking. I decided to stay an additional day to visit the swamps and Ulu Temburang National Park. This was worthwhile as logging is prohibited in the sultanate and the park is well kept. I also hired a "water-taxi" to go search for the illusive proboscis money. After about 4 hours of cruising up-n-down the water canals, my luck finally turned - as we found a group of the monkeys.
