Living the Life of a Celebrity

We are winding down our amazing month in Indonesia.  Every day has been a new adventure. I've loved the scenery, the food, and the people...especially the people.  

Apparently throughout most parts of Java, white people like me don't visit.  One resulting phenomenon that David and I didn't anticipate was the numerous requests from random strangers to pose with them for pictures.  Families, school groups, couples.....they all were almost as excited about a photo with me as I would be with Barack Obama.
Random new friends in Solo.

Random new friends at the top of a volcano outside of Bandung.

A dad takes this shot.....wanting me to pose with his family.

Everyone was so genuinely happy I almost always obliged to pose.  For me, it's a gentle reminder of the world's diversity and  my own culture is a small slice.

Back to the states in two days!
