Friday 23 Mar
Surabaya, Indonesia

And you thought this travelling thing was a holiday...

We left BL with precious memories and more than a few mosquito bites (we've run out of DEET and are having to resort to citronella - which I'm not sure that the local insects have been told is actually a repellant ).

Off we headed to Bromo volcano on the island of Java which was a mere 1 taxi ride, 2 plane rides, an overnighter in a tacky Chinese hotel (Surabaya), 1 local bus and 1 minivan ride away from BL!

And you thought this travelling thing was a holiday...Laugh

    Also on the road in Java - we liked the movement of the scooter vs the lack thereof of the vendor.
