Potluck & Slideshow - The Island of Borneo

Trip dates: Thursday, March 14, 2019 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

Potluck @ 6:30pm, Slideshow @ 7:15pm, Doors close @ 9:00pm

Join David Loutzenheiser on a journey halfway around the world to Asia, specifically the island of Borneo. The adventure starts with the worlds longest flight. What's it like to be cooped up in a plane for almost 19 hours? After some brief highlights of urban hiking in Singapore, it's on to Borneo!

Borneo is an island of sweeping rainforests, coastal mountains, diverse and unique wildlife, and some incredible food! The journey will take us through several national parks, trekking in the Kelabit Highlands where we meet friendly locals, and finally exploring the bustling cities of Kuching and Kota Kinabalu.

Potluck: Please arrive with your contribution between 6:30-6:45pm. Homemade salads and main courses are always welcome, takeout & store-bought goodies are equally welcome:) Serving spoons, plates, bowls, cups, cutlery, napkins and drink pitchers will be supplied. There is a kitchen to re-warm food or prep (stovetop, oven, 2 microwaves, sink & fridge). Please bring your own cook pots for the stovetop. HELPFUL TIP: There is a Whole Foods conveniently located across from the Community College T Stop on Austin St (in the Bunker Hill Mall) for last minute food pickups.

IMPORTANT: You *MUST* register for the show to gain access to the building. A keycode will be emailed to all registrants the day before the show.

Directions:

Public Transit: Take the MBTA Orange Line subway to the Community College or North Station stop. Walking times from either stop is approximately 10 minutes. The AMC's front door is located to the left of Legal Oysteria at 10 City Square, Charlestown, MA.
