Off into the jungle

Today we are on the move again, having decided to spend some time in Taman Negara, Malaysia's premier national park. After a long, hot day of travelling, we arrived late afternoon and booked into a chalet, just in time to avoid the start of a heavy tropical downpour.
When the rain had abated, we went out in search of food. Down on the river, there are several floating restaurants, so we chose one and walked into it along a gang-plank. We felt like we were really in the jungle - the fast-flowing muddy-brown river, dense forest, and mist mingling in the tops of trees - it was all very Amazon-esque. After dinner, we went to one of the other restaurants to pick up our park permits that had been arranged for us.
