English Narrative

19-Aug-2006 -- Apres une premiere tentative ecourtee en compagnie de Luc Pauget (voir 0S 117E sur ce site) je retournais sur les lieux avec toute la famille - Benjamin (8ans) raconte : "nous sommes partis de bonne heure de balikpapan, on est arrive, sortis de la voiture mais on a essaye plusieurs chemins qui ne marchaient pas. On s'est piques dans les champs d'ananas, papa a vu des singes, pas nous, parce que les ananas etaient plus grands que moi. Il y avait aussi des herbes et des ronces. Finnalement on a trouve le bon chemin et on est arrives au point. Y avait des arbres a caouthchouk ! c'etait bien !"

English Narrative

19-Aug-2006 -- After a too short try together with Luc Pauget (see 0S 117E on this site) I return to this spot with my all family. Benjamin (8yrs) is speaking: "we leave balikpapan early, we arrive, get out of the car but we try different tracks that did not make it... We were scratched in the pineaple fields, dad saw monkeys, but not us because the pineapples were bigger than myself. there was also big herb and bushes... Finally we found the right track and get to the point. There were big hevea trees. It was fun!"
