To understand how we are doing you have to picture yourself in the Southeast Asia that you may have seen in films. There are more people in Saumlaki than you can imagine, half of them on motorbikes and 25% in uniforms (all government employees have uniforms). Beautiful dancing (and dancers) in lavish performances, but also dirt and open sewers. But most of all more smiles, hospitality and curiosity than we have seen anywhere. It is hard to get very far on foot when everyone wants to test their English skills (mostly very limited). If we try some phrases of Bahasa (Indonesian) it is even more popular and they turn into language tutors. No, we don't get very far, but we are high on this adventure and will soon be back with more.
