by Will Sanders on December 25th, 2009
Happy Christmas Makassar I am writing from Makassar, the port city of an island called Sulewesi, which is part of Indonesia.  It is now Christmas eve, and I sit here alone drinking bintang beer, haunted by the first of what I expect to be three ghosts.  The first is Christmas past, here goes: When I was a ... continue this adventure »

The Dead man at Papuma

by Will Sanders on November 25th, 2009
Here I am, mugging for the camera.  I didn’t know that I was standing over a cliff which over looked a dead man floating in the tide.   I had written so much here, it was all about my new town, Jember.  It was about how I am here for two months and it is a very ... continue this adventure »

by Will Sanders on September 27th, 2009
You may want to internet a map of East Java for this, I can’t be bothered to stop to give directions, have to make good time, don’t you know. Actually, since writing this, Marcus has been kind enough to make a google map for us all to refer to.  Thanks a million, Marcus.  Here’s the link: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=116807996117912663230.00047af831e35b38ceb64&t=h&z=9 It ... continue this adventure »

Fourth of July on a mountain

by Will Sanders on August 24th, 2009
What the hell was I thinking?  Seriously, what in the hell was I thinking?  How did I ever get myself into this?   Why did I agree?  What am I, a moron? These were the demon questions which flew around my head like harpies on the first day of my cursed ascent of Welewrang and Arjuna.  We ... continue this adventure »

The couch looks like a lonely place to be

by Will Sanders on August 2nd, 2009
June became July and July went by at crazy speed, made me a bit dizzy.  I did a lot of stuff this past month, and I haven’t been writing.  One excuse is I have been busy, blah blah blah, another is that I was out living adventures and couldn’t be bothered to write,  but either ... continue this adventure »

Rocky Mountain High….. Surabaya

by Will Sanders on May 6th, 2009
Hey, I forgot to tell you something last time, in the last post, I mean. The school’s driver who got me in from the airport loves John Denver. My first ride with him I was too preoccupied with the new country and city and with the cacophony to notice what was on the ... continue this adventure »

Day One

by Will Sanders on April 21st, 2009
Surabaya chapter 1 I landed here a couple of days ago. The airport customs was a large unlit room with no AC, flies and such. Big contrast to the airports of Singapore, Chicago, and Hartsfield. I showed the guy my passport, the new fancy smancy visa I have, he owwed and ahhhed before stamping. ... continue this adventure »
