Bali and Jakarta feat. Todd Danger pt.2

The beaches were great. Apart from the traveling dog fight, this spotted guy was a real jerk.

Photos from Asia pt.4, KL and Phuket

From Kualua Lumpur we flew for $50 each to Phuket, it was a neat experience to show up at the airport and pay cash for the next flight out.

This place was not my kind of place but the kids had a really good time.

I tried to keep up with them but suffered badly the next day.

We moved on to a lovely spot on the south end of the island run by a very hip Finnish guy.

The camp had a little thatched bar with Chang and a menu from a neighbor's kitchen, so good. 


Then back to Phuket to pick up the boy's custom suits.

The suits turned out great, though that cash would have helped them in Tokyo, live and learn.

Update from the farm.

The new succulent bed is coming along well. The aloe didn't enjoy the winter but the agave are thriving and I've had to cut the prickly pear back twice. 

Cardoon and combine.

Photos from Asia pt 3 - Kuala Lumpur

 Lots of fancy cars in Kuala Lumpur, also lots of very poor people.

This lady came out to demonstrate the correct way to eat giant crabs.


No thank you.

Bali and Jakarta for CMWC feat. Todd Danger

I trained by working three days at Mercury.

The Surly Travelers Check has worked out great. It took a few tries to get it packed into the S&S travel case but I have it down now.

 First view of Taiwan.
 I had an enjoyable 20 hr layover in Taipei. I took the train to the city and my cheap Airbnb. Fun late night street scene and I had some delicious fried chicken.

The early morning walk to the train station was really nice. I would like to come back here and spend more time at some point.

Hello Kitty plane has got to be a good omen.

 Made it to Densapar and found Todd. Our hotel has a sweet rooftop pool and dudes keep bringing us buckets of ice cold beer and delicious spicy noodles, I could get used to this.
