Our journey of 3 countries involved a morning call at 3.30 am and followed with a 3.5 hr flight to Sydney before leaving the airport and re-entering for another 6.5hr flight to Indonesia.

the farm in Kuala Lumpur and making my way to Indonesia I realised that what I
was about to do I had no knowledge of what so ever. I had no idea about 1. What
