Javanese landscape by train

ON A TRAIN BETWEEN BOGOR AND JAKARTA, Indonesia -- Here I catch a glimpse of a farm alongside the railroad.


From my field notebook

Tuesday, March 19, 1996:

Indonesia: Java: Jakarta: Well, I am worried about getting to Bali. I'm not sure the buses can handle the amount of baggage we need to carry. I don't know what to do. I guess we'll all show up and hope for the best. I assumed their buses had baggage compartments, but apparently not. What a big fucking mess. The logistics of what we're trying to accomplish is nighmarish to say the least. Maybe we'd better flying and paying overweight charges.
