Hans,

My wife and I are off to Frasers Hill for a week in July. Hopefully, I will have a trip back to Sarawak early next year. If that works out, I will certainly contact you. It would be great to meet up again and also to see more of the sites near Kuching.

By the way, do you know Michael Lo? Did you see his shots of that gorgeous green and gold tree snake that he found on one of his recent expeditions?

That's good news, David! Hope to see you again in 2015 then!

Yes, Mike's a good friend and fellow nature head who knows Sarawak like the back of his hand and has shown me many beautiful spots around here most people never get to see.

Hans,

I am meeting up with Kurt and Derrick on the last night or two when we are back in KL. I am really looking forward to a night out with them. Both are so good with lighting and I will watch closely how they go about producing these superb images. Kurt also has turned up many interesting reptiles and amphibians in the last few months so hopefully I will see a few of those as well.


Regards,
David

Wish I could join you! I missed the opportunity to learn from Kurt last time he was in Sarawak...
