Daily Dose of Beauty: Adding a bit of light to the darkness as we get through the pandemic together.

March 31st, 2020

Today we’re touching down in Borneo based on results from yesterday’s massive worldwide poll. πŸ˜‰

There’s no airport at Bako National Park, but not to worry. We’re landing our magic carpet on this expansive beach where tall rock formations extend into the wispy blue sky.

Borneo is the world’s third largest island, a land mass shared by three countries – Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia. It’s a place known for its dense jungle and abundance of endemic wildlife including the Bornean orangutan.

Borneo’s ecosystem is both preserved and exploited. Nature and wildlife attract tourists while resources and palm oil attract big business. Indonesia recently decided to relocate its capital (Jakarta) to East Kalimantan, a decision that may endanger what’s left of Borneo’s native rainforest. I hope not, but we’ll see.

Climbing up from the beach, we come to a high point looking out from this peninsula northeast of Sarawak. Enjoy the view and keep an eye out for tomorrow’s post featuring some of Borneo’s most wild and beautiful residents.

Until tomorrow,
Kelly
