We have now arrived back in Makassar, Sulawesi.
We spent the last 6 weeks on the Maluku islands, including Lease Islands, Banda Islands and the Kei Islands. Most of the time things were pretty basic and laid back especially Kei Islands where we rented a room in a 'villa' right on the beach.
We have been travelling around on the infamous Indonesian planes, ferries and boats, some journeys were eventful, the language barrier being a challenge at times but we made it, we can now speak quite a few phrases, enough to get by on.
There has been very little Internet, which is why I've not written too often, it is very hot in Makassar especially in this Internet cafe so I am not writing much right now. We will be home in just over a week and I will catch up with all the news then. Also once again the computer cannot take photos so again they will have to wait to.
Last night we checked into a hotel in Makassar that actually had Air-con, a flush toilet, hot shower and clean white sheets, luxury!!
We are spending a day enjoying the facilities and resting before heading off to Tana Toraja, some tribal mountain villages a 10-hour bus ride north of Makassar.
We should be in Kuala Lumpur on 27th/28th February for our flight home to Manchester.
