|In between two popular streets,
a tiny alley serves as a popular shortcut. The alley is now
recognised as a heritage site in itself!
|Sarawak is dominated by
rivers. To get to the far side of Kuching, the locals take tiny
boats, so we tried as well.
|But to get to elsewhere in
Sarawak, the fastest option is a huge sea-going passenger
|After crossing the open sea, we
headed upriver and saw lots of evidence of timber processing - one of
Sarawak's major industries.
|In a local town Mayang was
interested to see such things as pig snouts on sale in the market, as

holiday, we headed up another smaller river to see some caves and a
national park with some strange trees.
