    Hi guys,

    Happened to find this wonderful diaries of yours when searching for a private driver in Surabaya. My name is Schristia originally from Jakarta and currently residing in Singapore.

    I am planning to go to Mount Bromo in December and will start my journey from Surabaya. I’m looking for driver who can drive me from Surabaya to Bromo and back. Since I will be traveling alone, I want to find a good and trustworthy driver.

    Do you still have a contact no of the driver that you used iin Surabaya last time?

    Appreciated a lot and Thanks.

    Hello Calvin,
    Could not believe that you are the young fellow we met at the top of Bogoda watching sunset in Bagan?
    Wish you are OK in North Korea and be safe!
    We did golf the next day around Bogodas and had a lot of fun!
    Let me know next time you are in Indonesia, I will keep my promise on the beer :-)

    But seriously, grow out the fumanchu / handle-bar beard AND shave your hair – it’ll grow back by the time you’re back in NY, so it won’t matter, and it’ll look great in pictures. Either that or grow some fuzz tail hair/pony tail. seriously. haha. no seriously.
    glad to see you’re enjoying the other side of the world, find some good indian street food in south-east asia and savor it, i’ll get to live vicariously while at work meng. Hope you two are both safe from toddi-sickness! =\
