It has been correctly pointed out that I am not completely (and even potentially not even accurately as some of my impressions are, no doubt, subjective) describing the countries we are visiting. I have lived my entire life (other than the odd trip, now and then) in New York City and am still discovering new impressions. I generally budget a week to see the highlights of a large city and at least a month to scratch the surface of a country. Cruises offer a cost effective means to touch a wide variety of spots over a short period of time, but little chance to see any of them in depth. By generally not taking organized tours, while we limit ourselves to to a lack of formal verbal information, we substitute a greater chance of interacting with the local population. While my descriptions are no doubt incomplete (especially from the standpoint of a resident), they are simply my impressions. The thoughts I jotted down in the last segment were based on short visits to eight locations scattered across part of Indonesia and, while not a complete overview of the country, do give a bit of one guy’s insight about a country which I suspect 99.9% of American will never set foot in.
