For the record...

It is a bad idea to try to go to Indonesia without an Indonesian visa. Correction: More accurately, it is a bad idea to trust that the Northwest Airline flight agents will know anything about Indonesian visas and let you board your flight without one…despite the fact that you have to be IN INDONESIA to get one and they do know that. I won’t classify this as an international incident but it was close. Still in DC. It’s snowing here and I’m dressed for 85 degree weather.

Greetings, Earthlings!

This is not Kristin and I am not writing from Idaho. (Praise the Lord!) However, I am Kristin’s sister and am writing from Washington, DC where I am about to leave for Banda Aceh, Indonesia. I’ll be three months there doing tsunami relief with an undisclosed organization - lest I get fired for my postings. For your reading pleasure, I will be posting from time to time about the wild and wacky time I’m having in refugee camps, or with the government, or with the GAM guerillas. Stay tuned…
