The venerable Sarawak Museum, built by the third (last) White Rajah Charles Brooke, for exhibiting the handicrafts of local indigineous people and fauna of Sarawak. It was copied after the town hall in Normandy, France (early 18th century design). Nice pedigree.
Last day in Kuching today, and we are due to leave 9.30am, but this cargo plane decided to overshoot the only runway at KCH at 6.00am, leaving it stranded in the mud. The whole airport is now closed, till the stricken machine is removed, and the runway cleaned and inspected.
