The last stop on the Southeast Asia Reunion Tour was Sarawak, Malaysia. There I met some new teachers and students, saw three national parks, celebrated Gawai, and spent 16 wonderful days with my sister Caroline.
Returning to my former school in Malaysia after two and a half years. We celebrated teacher’s day and the first day of Ramadan.
