It is now the beginning of January and the monsoon wind has started fully and is now blowing with full force from exactly the direction in which we actually want to head, from the east.
We could take this as an excuse why we are still in Kota Kinabalu - but the truth is that we just like it here. Super marina, just a few miles to anchorages where we are alone and when the weather is nice the gigantic view of the over 4000 meter high Kinabalu.
So, let the wind blow wherever it comes from, we will stay here for a few more weeks and enjoy this wonderful place.
Besides that...why should we rush, there lays so much time ahead of us.
