    The smell of incense filled the damp narrow alleys. It kept me up that morning as I had failed to sip a cup of caffeine. The burned incense always makes me happy as it reminds me of Bali and indicates that I’m traveling. On the contrary, I was roaming the town I’ve called my second Read More

    I hate to think that I could ‘travel too much,’ but I think I can. I’ve met these circumstances several times but, thank God, it only went as far as a heavy flu. Yes, I’m mortal. I had come back tired and on the verge of flu from the #BarondaMaluku trip but I had to Read More
