Last year I visited some dear friends of mine in Kalimantan. This was my room at their house….. many fond memories….
Another room another place in kalimantan….. someone’s kitchen where we were invited to learn how to make coffee the kalimantan way.
This post got inspired by a fellow bloggers’ trip to Flores this year and looking at the photos I thought wow I remember this place….beautiful. They asked whether it had changed and id probably say not much…….maybe busier sedikit (a little bit in bahasa indonesia) And so dug out some photos.I was pleased that I was able to lay my hands on them after 10 years..hurray for cds!
View from the hills behind Labuhanbajo Flores
The harbour at labuhanbajo
Pulau Rinca national park entrance…..
Komodo near the jetty to greet us. It has a name on its back. I wonder if its still there?
On our walk…..kering sekali our guide said it hadnt rained for 5 years! This komdo was huge and quite intimidating . Both our guides had big sticks to fend them off…. luckily no need!
A kerbau or water buffalo nestled in the muddy cool water. I remember it being pretty hot.
Near where we stayed at Labuhanbajo… ssoooo beautiful and peaceful …..salam hangat!
My brother and I both have a love of mountains. The Himalaya would have to be one of the wonders of our planet. We spent a few weeks walking thru the kali gandaki valley which is said to be one of the deepest valleys on earth. Not difficult to imagine.
Taken fromjust outside of Pokhhara
From Pokhara we flew to Jomsom and from there we walked up towards the tibetan plateau….spectacular country
View looking up into a side valley heading north from Jomsom…..awesome
Heading down the valley early one morning….
Such a timeless amazing place….even now looking at these photos …the mountains feel almost sentient..
And those that live there…. taken in a small village off the track ..
The backdrop ..the foothills of Dalhagiri and a small glacier rushing down a side valley. Namaste …
