To start the day of our inland adventure, we checked out the view of KK from the Old Signal Station. Unfortunately much of the spectacular harbour view is now obscured by sky scrapers.
we tootled down the hill, north towards University of Malaysia , Sabah to see the Tun Mustapha Building. This modernist piece of architecture was built in the mid ’70s by erecting the central lift tower the affixing the circular steel frames out from it and glassing it in. We were looking forward to the view from the top but it is Govt offices. Next door is a truly the spectacular Goverment House..not yet complete.
THEN we’ve done a mammoth drive in our borrowed Perodua Kembara ( a tiny 4WD) up to Kundasang. The drive wasn’t all that massive but the little car likes to stay in 1st and 2nd gear and had lots of trouble overtaking big , slow trucks. It’s just not the sort of power Monaro Bryan is used to. We have just flaked out at the Kinabalu Pine Resort with a lovely veranda looking up to Mt K which is very impressive. We’re off to the War Memorial.
