When we came to the Borneo hotel and we were walking to our room, we passed a GIANT chess board. There are wooden pieces that you can lift and move. Emma and I have been playing chess a lot. It reminds us of the Sorcerer’s Stone in Harry Potter.
I had the BEST mango pudding ever at this restaurant. It was really sweet and creamy, it tasted tangy! There are different foods here. Last night at dinner we went to a buffet and there was really yummy fruits but there wasn’t very much that I liked. At breakfast there was SO much I liked – eggs benedict and lots of fruit. There is a fruit called mangosteens with little white lobes and there is a sort of peely shell around it, it’s tangy and sweet has a tint of orange and a pinch of mango.
We were walking down the path and I said, “I want to see the monitor lizard in the pond” and I looked over and the monitor lizard’s head was poking out of the lake! It’s about as big as me, and it eats ANYTHING that it can swallow.
I am a tiny bit scared and excited about the creatures in Borneo. Next time I’ll talk about some cool bugs I’ve seen.
