I spent several weeks this past winter visiting friends and travelling in Indonesia, an amazing place with so much to see I need to go back.  I was in Bali a few years ago after finishing an assignment with the United Nations in East Timor.  So many more tourists now than the first time I visited.  Tourism is becoming popular with Asians.

There are many ancient Hindu and Buddhist temples and ruins; you just have to search them out so get a good local driver and guide.  That is half the fun.  If you are getting tired of visiting Angkor Wat consider Indonesia.

This photo was taken at a tea plantation outside Solo: local ladies taking the ever present selfies.  They are so colorful against the field of green.  I was struck by how friendly people are in Indonesia.
