Introduction Hello, welcome to my Borneo blog. Its my way of sharing with family and friends, my travels throughout Borneo and my experiences with the generous and kind Penan people. I came to Borneo because I was inspired by a radio lecture by an anthropologist named Wade Davis, which was called. 'Why Ancient Wisdom Matters'. In it, he spoke about Penan culture, in particular their culture of sharing all things, their knowledge of the forest and most importantly for me, their abundant happiness. He said that 'For the Penan, depression would be a failure of the imagination'. Since then, I have learned so much about the Penan, how they have changed and the issues they face today. Much of this I cannot put on my blog. I continue to learn about tribal cultures and to contemplate the way in which we live today.
