The mini van was picking up up at 9.20 at the guesthouse and it would take around 4 and a half hours it took us 5.. Brunei so was told me , do not stay there more than a night. And than move on. Not a lot to be seen out there. So after all I was glad that I stayed for two nights because I had some real good times there. After I got my stamp and went to my guesthouse I took a walk through the area of my hostel. In fort of it is the biggest stelted water village in the world. In there there are 15000 people living in wooden houses and now days also made from concrete. There are 15 schools a fire brigade and police and also Mosques on stelts (wooden poles ) On the second day I made a small boat tour out there.
But I started to go to the Mosque in the afternoon to make some photos and if possible to go in. At 16.30 I entered a mosque for the first time in my life. This is the mosque named after the former Sultan Of Brunei. This one is nice but not very special. it was build before all the oil money rolled in to this country. The out side is nice bust in side felt a little cold. When you go is as a western person you have to put on a long robe , all black. No photos in side. and no praying people in there. With prayer time no visitors allowed. Than I went for a cappuccino. After the sunset I went back to the mosque to make some photos. And then at 21.00 hours a went for a 75 euro cent dinner. Nasi with chicken.
