.INDONESIA, ETC...great new book!

This book has kept me up two nights straight until almost 2am, so I am bleary-eyed while typing this. I traveled by train through Java on my first trip to Asia, a long time ago.

Reading this book has kindled my interest in a return to the country, to explore the lesser-known islands.

Highest recommendation:

I haven't been to Banda yet, but I'm looking forward to hearing more from Elizabeth Pisani this week at the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival. Great book!

Thanks for the books recommendation, Eks. I've been to Indonesia half a dozen times and know I've just scraped the surface. So much more to see and experience in this amazing country.
