    The "Eat Pray Love" frenzy continues and for those who have been inspired to set off on their own soul-searching adventure in Indonesia Kamandalu Resort has come up with their own version of Elizabeth Gilbert's story...(cont.).

  • I was in Indonesia years ago and never got to see one of the famous puppet shows (I got a killer cold and missed half my trip!), but when I go back, I definitely want to see one. It's a pretty unique art form! Here's a neat video I found on YouTube:
  • As an avid snorkeler and once wanna-be marine biologist, I was fascinated by a recent posting on Indonesia's Raja Ampat Islands: The Best Snorkeling in the World. Among other things, 75 percent of all coral species are found here, and over 1,000 species of fish. Ah, well, one day...
