I now walk into the wild 1
The proposition of trekking through the jungle to explore the numerous capes/bays/beaches/sea cliffs of Bako National Park is an enticing one. Thus, I am in high spirits as I await the local public transport at an unmarked bus stop in Kuching City. Just now, a minivan pulls over and I am assured by the unofficial driver that he is much quicker than the bus for only a fraction extra cost. Thanks to a classic Malaysian opportunistic business scheme, I (along with a van load of tourists) race along the highway and arrive at Kampung Bako well before the official bus crawls in.
