Amazing country John! My father, when I was a geologist, worked in Indonesia. I shall be sure to show him your pictures, it will be very interesting.

Hi Julia, Thank you for your comment. It is a beautiful country. I am living here in Indonesia in the southwest of the Island of Sumbawa for the next two years or so. It is quite different to the village in the photo which was on the shore of Lake Matano. Greetings from Sumbawa, John

Hello Mimi. This is a very isloated village with the only access by boat on the lake - no roads. Very different to the way most people live.

Regards, John

Hi John! What a beautiful tropical picture of some coast line of Sulawesi, the former Celebes! Many friendly greetings! Anton Trötscher

Hi Anton, thanks for your nice comments. This village is at the western end of Lake Matano and is quite isolated with no roads anywhere near.

Best wishes, John
