... in Indonesia I have not seen a single foreigner aside from Basti (and maybe a guy on the street as we drove past him - but I'm not sure about that one either).

Day 3 - With pumped up adrenalin we started of at 9 in the morning. We were scooted away by 4 local motorcycles to the starting point for Rp 10000/pax. Wasting no time we embarked on our trek. The terrains and trails are clean and clearly paved ...
