Location: Terraganu, Malaysia
The crew of Argo has seen a variety of places over the past few months, and Terraganu fits perfectly amongst our list of unique destinations. Today we were granted an opportunity to visit a local boat yard, where a few highly skilled men are able to build beautiful Malay Junks with only a sketch pad and their hands. In just a few years time one of these stunning boats is able to sail off into the sunset. Some people even purchased small handmade replicas of these boats as souvenirs of this great boat building region. The rest of the day was spent either on shore enjoying our remaining hours in Malaysia or working on assignments that are due in the next few days. Tomorrow morning we say farewell to Terraganu and Malaysia, as we continue our trek north to our final country, Thailand, and our second to last stop, Ko Samui.
