Location : Dusun Suruh Tembawang, Desa Suruh Tembawang, Kecamatan Entikong, Kabupaten Sanggau, Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia.
After learning that one of the many ‘sub’ Sungkung villages wasn’t far off I decided to organise a side trip to Sungkung Pool via Suruh Tembawang about 30min upstream with about 150 households. We had to wait for the morning church service to end before Mac, Hosen and 3 other to come along.
The half hour boat ride was a lot more interesting and exciting than the previous day’s with beautiful huge rocks and especially the choppy waters along certain stretches where the rapids were. Some anxious moments. Somehow the current was a lot stronger today.
When we arrived at Suruh Tembawang our boatman, who runs a store trading in commodities, insisted we pay him a Christmas visit. He led us to the back of his store and invited us to the laid out Christmas snacks and drinks. Sensing it was going to rain anytime soon he quickly introduced us to his daughter Juliana who was to organise the 4 ‘ojek’ drivers for the four of us Mac, Hosen, & both of us to Sungkung Pool, pronounced ‘pol’. More stories & pics soon.
