`SAIL INDONESIA RALLY-2007’ … 20 of 25 … `Bima’s Donkey Transport’ … 12th September 2007

***   FIRST HALF OF RALLY … DARWIN, AUSTRALIA TO BALI, INDONESIA   ***

BIMA, Indonesia … 3 of 5

BIMO MARKETS - SEPT 2007 007

*** `CENTRAL BIMA’. ***

Much of the local goods cartage is done by the donkeys, not just human transport. The donkeys look very healthy and I think most are loved by their reinsmen, but they work hard, day and night.

*** THE BACK-END OF THE HORSE-POWER’. ***

And it was a lot of fun, plus they were there to take us home.

This Gala night was the most extravagant to date … featuring a band of about 20 people and extremely talented (I think) and noisy.

*** GORGEOUS DANCERS/SINGERS … GOVERNORS’ BANQUET. ***

They supported a troupe of about ten gorgeous dancing women … dressed in fabulous rich gold and red silks. Indonesia was showing us a wealthier life style the further we moved West.

The dinner was excellent … and security was high! I wouldn’t consider a visit after hours!

Never did see the Governor!
