Photography in Posts

I have started the process of embedding some photos within my posts. As of now, every photo you see was taken by me. I have a strong love of photography and hope to share some of my experiences with more than words. All of the photos were taken in either Cape Town, South Africa or from the islands of Java, Bali, or surrounding islands in Indonesia. I still wish to maintain simplicity.Read more

Welcome to the Jungle

Home? Yeah, I’m wondering where that is. Is it Indonesia now? Is it America? Is it Cape Town? Well, at any rate, I’m back in Jakarta. The Marriot was bombed downtown only days before my return – how’s that for a welcome home! It feels a bit strange knowing that I was eating sushi in that hotel in June! I must be getting used to hearing these events because it didn’t even really surprise me. I’m buying a car nextRead more

I’ve been out hiking, getting lost, eating ostrich, adjusting to driving on the left side of the road, waking up without an alarm, reading, taking photos, and enjoying life away from Indonesia. Unlike December, there’s not a wholeRead more

Leaving For Cape Town

Well, I’m off to Cape Town tomorrow, so my writing will be limited in the coming weeks. I will be there for about a month! I’m so ready to get out of Indonesia… hopefully I can unwind and enjoy some cooler weather. Thanks to those of you who have written me, it’s nice to hear from those who actually read this! I’ll be sure to take some more photos, and will try to post some messages when I find time…Read more
