Sun Bears, The Other Sepilok Sanctuary

So yesterday we'd bumped into two of the Brits from the boat at breakfast and they told us that the other couple, the Yorkshire folks, weren't well at all. Apparently they had it coming out of both ends, probably some manner of food poisoning. The woman we were chatting to wasn't feeling 100% either but [...]

I rocked up to Hotel Aditya and was informed by a ridiculously cheerful bloke wearing [...]
