Talked to my friend last night - he said not to worry, there are internet cafes and free wi-fi just about everywhere. He said wi-fi is more available there than it is here in the US. Have a great time!

That is very cool Glenn that you can boast of direct lineage to Peregrine White; few people can say that.

True Glenn, Internet is much more easy to find on the streets than in the US or Europe, or Malaysia. Indonesia is say 10 years behind, it is rare to find LCD/Plasma TVs, probably Internet at home is not yet standard, hence Internet and rather online-game places are everywhere.

Congratulations, Alexxi, for another fine trip. That was pure adventure. A bit harrowing at times but you survived and you have more tales for your grandchildren. I enjoyed reading your travel blog.

Was it hard to read for you? As I could not use diacritics, and my czech is not very standard at times... sometimes I mix some references only few people understands.

Well, with my very limited grasp of the czech language, I would have been lost without google translator. I read your posts first and got out of them what I could(probably about 50 per cent), and then used the translator.
I did spot idioms and such. Some colloquialisms.
Your encounters with the taxi drivers were funny.

people-plural

people are......
people understand
people visit
people do the strangest things

So I went through the about 1000 pictures we took, and I picked some of the most interesting. I put them on Facebook, but no facebook is needed to see them:

Those are beautiful pictures. A great service, sharing them with us.
Those towers are incredible, and the ones with the boat on top, that is almost crazy.
Gotta love those orangutans. Did you hear anyone call them Pongo? I hear that's what they are called in Indonesia. Maybe just a rumor.
That early morning hike to see the sunrise was well worth it. Big volcano biding it's time.
To je skutečně velká jeskyně a působivá socha.

Tvoje slova...."Zmatení směrů? Jestli je Mekka a New York stejným směrem, tak sním svůj diplom".....Ne tak zmatení. Od místa kde jsi tehdy byl je to fakt.

Pongo... never read or seen that there. Given that the word "Orangutan" itself is of malay origin (indonesian and malaysian language is almost same), meaning "Man from the forest"... I do not think so.

On the other hand your are righ Smile. For me being "on the very end of the world" I simply though of New York being the other way, which it is. Yet Pacific ocean is so huge, that the distance one or the other way is more or less the same.
