Down the memory lane again courtesy of Patt Taylor Bader. As mentioned in an earlier post – Patt was one of the Peace Corps station in Bintulu in 1965.
Sadly, due to other commitments ” got busy with education, job, and family” she had not been back to Bintulu since leaving Sarawak on Jan. 1967.
“Haven’t traveled much since those days,” she emailed us. “I know things have changed by pictures my Iban friends share on Facebook.”
Patt is wondering if anyone recognizes any of the people in the pictures below. If you do, please leave your comment. She deeply appreciated that.
