48th trip to Kuching in Gawai traffic

 This 48th trip to Kuching has been exceptional in that the journey took us 13 hours.  Two main reasons for the extra long hours spent traveling were, firstly; the Gawai trafic and secondly the problem with tyre balancing.  It was only in Sibu that we managed to get a workshop to balance the front tyres.  Once balanced the driving was much more pleasant.  Throughout the journey there were many cars on the road because many native peoples  of Sarawak were returning home to their longhouses to celebrate the Gawai festival.  Long queues were the order of the day.
