Follow me to Malaysian Borneo and the Fabulous Rainforest

On day five of our stay in Malaysia, we awoke early on Sunday morning and headed for the airport.  We were leaving Kuala Lumpur, and traveling to Sabah, the northern state of Malaysian Borneo.  Borneo is the third largest island in the world, after Greenland and New Guinea and politically, the island is divided among three countries, Brunei, Indonesia, and Malaysia.  At the airport, we paid a warm goodbye to our Malaysian Peninsula team and boarded one of two airplanes followed by a helicopter, which delivered us to the Danum Valley and the terrific Borneo Rainforest Lodge, located in the heart of the rainforest.  This part of Malaysian Borneo is an enormous wildlife reserve, home to a most diverse range of flora and fauna and we were there to explore!
