BOGOR, Indonesia -- This is the center of Bogor, in west Java. This river, whose name I cannot find on a map, runs through the Bogor Botanical Garden as well as through the heart of Bogor proper. The view is toward the southeast.


From my field notebook

Thursday, March 14, 1996:

Indonesia: Java: Bogor: I couldn't reach Paul tonight. I tried calling but I think I kept getting the fax machine. I am staying at the Wisma "Ramayana" guest house. Facilities are spartan, but pretty good by Indonesian standards. The guest house is across the street from the Botanical Gardens and down the street from the Herbarium Bogoriense. We got hit with a pretty good thunderstorm this afternoon, so had no chance to go anywhere. I was too tired anyway. . .
