Saturday 26th January
Plan to see the top spinning etc today, but get to the tourist office and find things not happening, as its the close season. Damien and Claude get soaked in the rain. I have my umbrella. Becomes a running joke that it will be useful when we get to the jungle in Teman Negara and meet a tiger. Occasionally one is seen, also leopard and bear. There are no crocodiles in the rivers though. The trees get enormous, reaching 250 feet.
We will have to travel to Jerantut on the day train, as there is no night train going south, overnight in Jerantut, then bus to Tembeling to catch the park boat at lunchtime. Manage to get through on the phone to the National Park Office in KL today and let them know we are coming. I hope more than us three turn up to catch the boat, otherwise it will be too expensive.
