Accommodations II

When I first started the research on Shorea atrinervosa at the Raya-Pasi Nature Reserve in West Kalimantan (see Illipe Nut III), I would frequently spend the night in a little, run-down, almost abandoned, government hotel right on the border of the nature reserve. No electricity or hot water or towels. Three local Dayak boys as caretakers - and cooks if you brought the food. I can remember numerous nights being the only guest in this somewhat creepy hotel. And then getting up in the morning, having a cup of coffee and a bowl of Indomie with a fried egg, and then hiking up the moutain to my study site (red square). [NOTE: There was a waterfall and a place to swim right down from the hotel. Useful].
