>Where to start (in no particular order)
Michele – while we didn’t meet in the end, your information and encouragement got me to East Timor. We’ll meet again man. Madagascar?
Anne – Again we didn’t meet. Almost though! Blame Merpati! Thanks for all the flight info, the calls and emails. I did try. Next time eh!
Lia – Cheers for helping me out in ET. That Friday night in Dili was memorable . A few bars and that nightclub! Meeting Icelandic and Afghani guys in ET was something else.
Anton – my guide at the Tana Toraja funeral festival. Informative and attentive.
The guy who ran the internet cafe in Rantepao – Jesus there is nothing to do in that town at night sauf watching Steven Seagal disasters and reading in my room. There are no cafes! I read my eyes out and by then had to get out .
Blacky and Eddie – The big men in Sengiggi, Eddie, the great guitarist, unfailingly nice and a great looking 37 year old. Blacky, the only specimen of Lombokian low-land gorilla. Respected all along the East coast but where his Cockney accent came from I don’t know. Thanks for taking care of us, inviting us to your table, making breakfast, sorting out the room, getting us in that nightclub and being our friend.
Carlos – A drinking buddy in Ubud as well as random times in Lombok. Sorry about Flores dude! See ya soon.
Mike – Mike the Canadian. Canadian to the core. On the mental run from someone, we hung out in Ubud at the cremations and bar for a few days with Carlos and Marsha. Sorry mate. You know what I mean!
The little gay guy who ran the hotel in Atumbua, West Timor – after writing off that town and the hotel, the little camper came through brilliantly and made my stay comfortable, friendly and almost convenient.
Tom – for the usual Bangkok malarky.
Lauren – wooo. After 6 years, to meet and get on so well is a tribute in a myriad of ways.
Note: the pictures look like I am just thanking various women! Well I just don’t have any pictures of the boys. I will find them. 😉
