Sandakan-Tawau  山打根-斗湖

Our guardian angels: Monica (left) and Irene

We bid farewell to Sandakan, left for Tawau by bus on 3/6/2013.

Our 2 guardian angels Irene and Monica, one waited for the ticket booth of express bus to open, one picked us up from the hotel, made sure we boarded the bus at 8:30 am safely for our next destination.

The bus ride was comfortable (quite a new bus) but took almost  6 hours to reach Sandakan.

The supposedly "express bus" made many stops to pick up passengers and goods along the way!

At one stop, the bus picked up almost 3 tons of "goods" - belongings of a family moving out to Tawau.

We checked into Shirvirton Hotel at the center of the city.

The last time we were in Tawau was more than 5 years ago. I did not have Facebook and blog account then. You can see some pictures from my old website.

3/6 早上,我们告别了山打根,往下一个目的地---斗湖前进。

我们的两个护守天使 - Irene 与Monica, 一人在车站等售票处开门售票,一人用车载我们到车站,以保证我们能够安全的登上八点半的快车,到斗湖去。
