TRAVELLING THIS MONTH
s I mentioned in a post last week, I'll be away from the computer for a few weeks while I escort a VIP guest to Indonesia, including a visit to Tapaktuan, South Aceh (the small panoramic image in the sidebar links to the Google Map, and I wrote about my last trip here), and to the Buddhist monument Borobudur in Central Java. We'll probably be back before the end of July. There won't likely be internet access in Tapaktuan, though I might try to find time to post something from Yogyakarta -- if there's anything particularly worth writing about.
Australia yesterday warned of increased risk of terror attacks in the country, targeting western interests or tourist centres like Bali. Usually these warnings aren't borne out with an incident, though occasionally they have been. But we'll press on in any case -- wish us luck! It's an interesting change from a few years ago. Aceh will probably be the safest portion of our journey.
