The jungle at night...

We were on our beautiful honeymoon in Sabah and had decided to go along on the "nocturnal jungle tour".

Hoping the trek would live up to the hype, we set off into the blackness after our silent guide, flicking his torch on every couple of minutes to get his bearings.

The oppressive silence and blackness bore down on us as we eventually came to a small clearing. We quietly sat down on the dirt, nervously scanning the depths of the jungle for signs of life. Having been told to expect large, wild cats, monkeys, snakes and who knows what else, we waited expectantly.
Forty-five minutes later, we had seen three moths, a bat (who was clearly lost), and a stick whick fell out of a tree.

The amusement we derived from randomly throwing small rocks into the jungle, creating noises so our guide would quickly shine his torch in that direction, nearly compensated for the hundreds of mosquito bites we spent the rest of the night rubbing sting cream into.
