Mid-summer


My summer so far: no internet (for the most part), more reading, more walking, more food sampling. 

Indonesia flew by.  The island of Java, with its early morning muezzin calls, was interesting, though travel was cramped due to the high season. And, Bali, despite being a well-oiled tourist machine, charmed me again and again.  We could have easily spent the summer in Indonesia.  There's more, but I will leave that to another post, when more reliable internet is at hand.

After a short detour in Singapore, we find ourselves in Kolkata (Calcutta).  Oh my.

  1. You made it to Borobudur after all! Likewise, I can't wait to hear more about your adventures.

  2. Hi Michelle, Yes, I made it - and I loved it. It's really lovely. Indonesia in general was great. I could have easily spent the rest of the summer exploring the islands of Bali, Lombok, and Gili. Hope to post more about Indonesia when I return from my trip and tidbits of India in the meanwhile ... otherwise, all of it will blur together.
