Street sate and bat hunting

... tour, to a plantation that was right next door to the hotel. At the agreed time we got to the lobby and walked 2 minutes into the plantation area next door to the hotel. We had a local guide who showed us around: we learnt that there are two types of coffee (Arabica and supremo) and that in Indonesia there is also the Kopi Luwak. We saw pepper, ginger, cocoa and vanilla trees, and also got to taste coconut sugar. The farmers who produce the sugar were in ...

Indonesia: Ring of Fire

A travel blog entry by joandluke

Cemoro Lawang is the starting point for visiting Mount Bromo. This active volcano is best viewed at sunrise so we staggered out of bed at 0230 ready to join the fleet of vintage Toyota Landcruisers that poured up a nearby mountain. We passed motorbikes struggling ...
