Lifetime journalist, author, magazine editor and publisher, now semi-retired and traveling the world. My plan, after living in Costa Rica for 14 months, was to visit a new country in southern Europe every three months to experience the culture and the challenge of adapting to a new environment, while on a fixed income. That plan was sidetracked when I was offered a job in Indonesia, providing an opportunity to explore Asia. Indonesia lasted for a 4 wonderful years but I have now moved on to Hua Hin, Thailand.

    Thanks for letting me know. I’m guessing you posted the one of the boy in traditional dress but I couldn’t find it on your site.

    I just stumbled across your post on wordpress and shared it on my facebook page as I have put one of my own photos of a slum outside Jakarta on it just now and I thought your post was a perfect to compliment it. Thank you. Lottie
