We really had a great time. The Sail Indonesia Rally was definitely worth it. Indonesians were very welcoming and grateful that we were visiting their country. We learned enough of their language to get by. We were greeted like Rock Stars. We were treated like we were famous world travelers.
|We even made the front page of the newspaper.|
We ate like kings for essentially nothing. We saw animals found nowhere else. We made safe passages in poorly charted waters. We didn't get the engine intake or propeller fouled with plastic trash. We didn't hit any fish traps. We got an understanding of foreign religions and cultures. We met some great people. That makes for a pretty successful 3 months.
