Mr. Ben and Mr. Ben's wife (aka Erin) are moving to Bangkok this week and Tim and I are quite sad to see our Jakarta besties go.... we are excited to visit them in Bangkok soon, though!
On a lighter note, Mr. Ben and Mr. Tim took one last wild ride (a la Mr. Toad) a few weeks ago down Gunung Pancar near Sentul City, a suburb of Jakarta (it's the same place we went hiking last fall). As they traversed the mountain and kampung, Mr. Ben took a ton of video with his trusty head-cam and got some great footage:
Please take note of Mr. Tim slow-mo leapfrogging over the handlebars of his bike at minute mark 00:55 and Mr. Ben biting it soon after. At around 6 minutes you can see the transition from the kampung into the pine forest. To me it looks more like the Pacific Northwest U.S. than Indonesia!
