INDONESIA (back to Homepage) I arrived in Indonesia in November, 2003, just 2 weeks after the horrible terrorist bombing of the Sari nightclub in the heart of the tourist district of Denpasar, Bali. Starting at my friend Cory’s place in Surbaya, East Java, I made my way eastward through small villages and nearby volcanoes.  After a  few days in Bali with Cory and his pal Paul, I spent a week diving and relaxing in the laid back Gili Islands. From there, I spent a week heading east on a sailboat along the islands of Lombok, Sumbawa, Rinca, Komodo and Flores. The scuba diving among these islands offered amazing fish, 15’ stingrays, and the most surreal corals.
