Photographer's Note

Finally, after an extensive absence I have pleasure in posting again.

I have just returned from Sulawesi, which was my first visit to Indonesia, while not being as photogenic as other countries I have visited, the nature, the culture and the warm, friendly people made it a great vacation.

I am still ploughing through photos but hope to share a series takign you on a journey through Sulawesi and thereby puttign Sulawesi on the Trekearth map. (suprisingly few photos here).

Again my TE philosophy we pervail, as I teach you about Sulawesi through the medium of photography, posting sometimes less then perfct photos to tell the story.

So where do we begin --- why not my first stop. Northern Sulawesi, on a beautiful 3 km unspoilt beach, jungle to the waters edge. A few cottages to rent on the beach only 12 europeans stayign there and the others were divers, and what do divers do all day -- dive. Therefore, we had the entire beach to ourselves sharign only with a few stray dogs and manybirds and butterflies. As non-divers we enjoyed snorkelling in the coral reef just a few meters from shore. You can see the coral reef very cleary in the photo and the channel that the fisherman have made to allow access to the sea. In the distance two volcanos and the Tangkoko National park, we wil come to that later. For now enjoy the tranquility, it may not last........I will explain later.

Good to be back.
