Tomorrow We Go

Months of planning and logistics come to a head on Wednesday as we take our bags of equipment and expectations and board Singapore Air for Indonesia.

The 30-hour flight will land us in Frankfurt, Singapore and Jakarta where, like exhausted drunken marshmallows, we will greet Kian’s college friend, Nelly. She has arranged a cell phone and reunion dinner of Kian’s friends. I plan to smile and nod a lot.

Our trek is a curious one. The day after we arrive we will be standing a large field of equally spaced 25′ poles. Hanging from each will be an ornamental cage housing a dove and the dreams of many a would-be singing dove champion.

I found some images on the web of bird farm business cards and competition posters. These are not what I imagined them to be and I am trying to ward off all expectation of what awaits us…

    What an amazing trip this will be!! My two immediate reactions …. 1) they must have lost their Nat Geo subscription, and now have to go live it personally!, 2) Some guys will do Anything to avoid zuchinni season!

    I will follow your fab trip closely … vicariously. Have a great time – even the 30 hr “gettin there” part!!!
