Day 5 Out and about on the weekend

Today was set aside to explore further afield. After meeting up at the school with our hosts and other staff including Fadley, Zawani, Farizah, Umie and Therese we set of towards Pekan Nabalu and Kinabalu National Park. On the way we visited the Rumah Terbalik. Unfortunately the weather was not favourable for us to enjoy the view of Kinabalu.

From there we progressed to the moving Kundasang War Memorial at Ranau. This memorial commemorates the Australian, British and New Zealand servicemen who perished on the infamous Sandakan death marches in World War 2 and also the people of Borneo who tried to support them and were killed for doing so. 



From Ranau we headed of in the bus towards Luanti for the interesting experience of a fish massage in the river. Standing in the river and feeding the fish attracts them to come up to the shallows and nibble the dead skin of your feet.

We then headed back to Penampang and home after a long but enjoyable day.
