HEY THERE... In
this photo I am underwater in Pangandaran, Indonesia at a place called
green canyon. I hope you will like the
following web pages about a three week trip through Java and Bali that I
took in August and September of 1997.

helped me practice some Indonesian phrases
on the plane from Singapore to Jakarta. He was really nice.
Bandung is an active volcano called "Papandayan." We paid a few long
haired guides to take us to the steaming sulfur pools there. The place was
really wild! Some of the people on our trip painted their faces with the
sulfurous paste that flowed from the earth.
the beach town of Pangandaran we stayed in a cute little hut in "Delta
Gekko Village." The place had a real communal feel to it. Dinner was
served for all of the guests each night at eight and they had a pet bat.
One of the really nice things about Delta Gekko is that they let you
borrow bikes for free. You can also rent a motorbike for really cheap.
Probably our best day was spent riding bikes around this beautiful part of
Indonesia. We were very fortunate to come across a Sudanese wedding in
full swing. It was an absolutely magical experience as the locals welcomed
us and offered us food and tea

main regional attraction of this area is Green Canyon, a deep jungle
canyon where you can swim and scrambled over rocks and waterfalls. Really
fun and refreshing. |
In Indonesia there is no concept of "full"
