1972 Malaysia

315. Malaysia 1972 – Skrang River

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.


Thursday saw the tour driving up to Simanggang and then up river to a ‘typical Dayak village’ where the evenings entertainment was a performance of Borneo tribal war dances.

I was going to set this as the featured image, but according to my stats a lot of people go no further than the home page, so they can miss out. I think she really caught the moment here.

As there is only one shot of the dance, and huge gaps in the numbering, I guess Doris had a camera malfunction or only a few flash bulbs.

  1. Thank you. I’m glad you like them. I’m sometimes worried that people will have seen their like a thousand times already. When I’ve got to the end of the slides, I’ll have another go at decyphering Doris’ notes. I think for this trip they slept in narrow houses that jutted over the water and at one point completely lost their sister boat on the Skrang.
