    A travel blog entry by rachmatusadiah on Aug 15, 2003

    August 2003, was the first year I traveled as a Backpacker, as few friends demanded. Our destination was Tana Toraja in South Sulawesi. The number of airlines that fly to Sulawesi is very limited and only the most inexpensive Citilink airline which is a subsidiary of Garuda Indonesia.

I don't think it is a religious thing and maybe it is because it isn't as prolific at home but the burka really stirs me.

    ... it was the best experience of all, but I can easily confirm it was the one, that broke my heart in pieces.  The far as I am concerned, one of the most sad events in our lives, one that is the hardest to take and accept.
