    Love them! DD & I have been enjoying creeping your photobucket albums. She is a total beachcomber when we go on vacation and is absolutely fascinated seeing the underwater creatures.

    We are sitting at the Starbucks at the Makasar airport in Sulawesi. I may not have internet for a while after getting on the boat. I'll post when I can. This will be a long day of three different flights to get to West Papua. Hope to post soon.

    Love the pictures! I think the tiny seahorse and the blue ringed octopus are so neat. We're all jealous of your adventures.

    This WILL be the last post for a while. We were held in Manikwari harbor an extra day. The local chiefs were demanding a bribe to let us leave port. One chief wanted a laptop, but settled for seven hundred dollars instead. The boat owner may be deciding not to do these trips in the future. Without the tourists paying to see these whale sharks, I fear for the safety of these magnificent creatures. Their fins make them very valuable. Only money from tourists might make them more valuable alive.
    We will leaving shortly for a five hour steam to our next site, far from any civilization. I will catch you up when I can.

    SELAMAT JALAN !!!

    Make shark fin soup something shameful to eat, if possible. Hard to change tradition, but it might be the only way.

    Wow Allison what a wonderful experience you are having!
    It seems like coppers worldwide flock to Indo at this time of year - my Sgt and 2 Snr connies just got back from Bali after a month over there. Sgt is an avid diver as well ;)

    You still need to make the short flight across to Aus though! We've got a huge population of blue ringed octopus in South Australia, very close to the shore line. Also some exquisite leafy sea dragons.

    Loving your photos - they are great for procrastinating, traffic fundamentals are not the most exciting study topic!
