Xena Warrior Princess and Lunch

I need to catch up on posts – so I will make this one mostly pictures.  Bowo turned out to be a great guy and accommodated us by keeping on his prayer clothes (he said he felt comfortable with the birds in his mosque gear) and placing a little camera in a cage to hoist up a pole.

The Xena Warrior Princess Bird Farm is the most lavish we have seen – even boasting its own competition field and reception rooms.  Bowo was incredibly gentle with the birds and clearly has a lot of love for them.

Lunch

This was some Medan-style Padang food that Kian adores. Medan is where Kian grew up on the island of Sumatra

We arrived at Henry’s at 6pm and began a harrowing 10 hour drive to Solo for our first Perkutut competition.  More on that next post.
