Indonesia Update #7: Borneo Gallery

Once again, we are doing our best to keep the flow of information going from Southeast Asia to North America.  As of now, we know that our expedition group has made it to Bali for the concluding phase of their expedition.  A number of photographs from Borneo have reached us here in Bellingham, but the stories to accompany them are still on their way.  For now, please enjoy these images!
