Melody and I are in search of the Rafflesia Plant. We had asked many of the locals and the taxi driver, Peter, but the answers were all negative. We had given up hope and were just going to pay to enter the Botanical Gardens when Melody spotted a sign with a crudely painted on Rafflesia.

After we left the Rafflesia, we hired a private car and set out to Sandakan where we were to meet up with Kerry, our friend we had met on the way to Mt. Kinabalu. From Sandakan, our plan is to go on a river cruise on the Kinabatangan River, which has Orangutans, Asian Pygmy Elephants, Proboscus Monkeys, Macau Monkeys, Crocodiles and assorted birds in the rain forest. Should be a fantastic trip!
