So we moved over to the downtown Sandakan area and stayed at the Sheraton. New hotel, very nice, and about $50/night. Here’s the view of the harbor:
We went over to the Central Market and saw the wet market with all sorts of fresh fish for sale, and then went upstairs where Kate bought a few things and took some photos.
Nearby, as we walked around, Kate saw some guys photographing a model near the bus station. Kate asked what was going on, and we found out that it was a photography class where they are taught skills and then go out and take photos using the skills just taught, in this case with the hired model.
