October 21, 2008 - Dieng Plateau, Java, Indonesia

[October 27, 2008 - We've just received our clearance documents to leave Indonesia. I have just enough time to post these pictures before we sail. I'll post the corresponding text during our passage to Singapore.]
Water buffalo as plow horse
Terraces, terraces, as far as the eye can see
Central Java, a handful of Hindu and Buddhist temples surrounded by thousands upon thousands of mosques

With our guide's help, he had a likely looking log milledThe lady that owns the mill and her son and granddaughter
