Indonesia Bus

With over seventy thousand islands in indonesia these ferry’s are everywhere. Smiles, waves, and sometimes blaring music roar past us as they make their journey to the town for supplies and or return. 

Scooters, motorbikes, barrels and sacks of fish for the market, building materials, it’s all on board. Stern anchors are deployed on approach and the bowline made fast to shore. Ladder like structures are assembled and loosely  covered with planks and after most passengers disembark, the others wrestle their polysacks of ice and various catch, squid, snapper, produce,  whatever to market. Honda scooters and the like are pushed and shoved to land. 

Fuel drums, cement, iron and planks make up loads alongside the motorbikes for the return trips back out to the Island villages. No room below and the cabintop loads up with passengers. Smiles, and waves are the order of the day.

    Sounds like you are having a great time . Not much happening with us. Just got ourselves the new Mitsubishi . Good to get rid of the tank. Grahams birthday on thursday 28. Weather is all over the place hope for a hot summer. Take care of that volcano up there keep away from it . Hear it may blow its top . Stay safe .
