I received an email from a good friend in Papua that the above photo will be made into a post card along with some of my underwater shots to help promote diving in Irian Jaya (Raja Empat Islands). That is pretty cool.
Sorry for the lack of updates this week. We have our last day of school today. A few good friends are leaving, and there will be many farewell parties to attend today and over the weekend. Our headmaster for the past 15 years is leaving as well. I am looking forward to his speech this morning.
Tika has returned from Yogyakarta. Her sister is doing great, and they have already repaired their house. She said most people prefer to sleep outside because of fears of another earthquake. The next thing they should fear is Mount Merapi. Tika said you could hear it rumbling every 5 minutes or so. I would like to go back there to get more photos, but will resist the tempatation….I got my photos…besides, I won’t have my long lens as I am lending it to Dad for his Alaska trip. By the way, Dad, I will mail that on Tuesday.
