A River Trip Into Borneo in 1986 (Video)
Anthony Bourdain took a boat ride up the Skrang River on the island of Borneo for his TV show “Parts Unknown” recently. It looked quite different than the steamy place I visited in back in 1986. Here is a video I shot when things were more jungly and wild. Here also is a story I wrote back then includes a slog through bat and bird guano at the Niah Caves.

By the way, I used a huge shoulder-mounted video camera accompanied by a suitcase full of batteries and tapes. Could have done better with a GoPro today.
