‘Singers’ – a unique bronze casting at Yamugur
Mangy dogs at the Bitung flood area.
Every building, office, apartment, etc. as uniformed security guards
Laying a new driveway in the Indonesian squat….they can maintain this position seemibgly for hours.
Sea of bikes parked near the office
“Paoka” (pa-oke-ah) – he makes a few coins by stopping traffic when a bike or car needs to cut in….
These signs are on the warungs (little roadside restaurants) that are everywhere.  Nasi Uduk is rice cooked with coconut milk and Ayam Goreng is fried chicken.  They must serve eel (belut) and duck (bebek) also.
