Kuching




Our flight leaves Miri and within an hour, we are circling above Kuching. Kuching, located at the southern end of Borneo is a beautiful capital city situated along the Sarawak River. The river curves like a brown ribbon through the flat bright green landscape before entering the South China Sea. Kuching is a city honoring cats. Today is Chinese New Year and all businesses are closed. As we ride through town in the taxi, we can see fireworks lighting up the sky in many directions. The Grand Margherita Hotel is along the waterfront and our room looks down on the river, which is lit on both sides with colored lights. Fireworks can be seen in the distance. We are unsuccessful in finding dinner and end up in the hotel coffee shop with an unsatisfying meal.
