Jiving in Java

These Javanese schoolgirls cornered me during our visit to the famous Buddhist temple, Borobodur, to practice their English. Check out how they just dissolve into laughter everytime I mention the two Indonesian words I know, nasi goreng, which is the name of their favorite fried rice dish.


Apologies for the exposure, but I started shooting the video blindly from the chest when I thought that we were going to have some fun with the conversation. I didn’t want to miss the moment by bringing the camera to my eye.


The Legendary Cultures tour has been moving along nicely…some bumpy air and a bout of food poisoning, but I’m still standing and in the home stretch.


Next stop for the Legendary Cultures tour: Bhutan!  I’ll keep you posted…


Here’s a still of the girls posing for a snap.

    That’s hilarious Bob. I love the sideways hat on the girl on the right. We’re still exporting our finest fashion trends.

    Steady as you go Robert! I all to well know the stain of the Luxury Jet Trips and hope you do not get to lost in the “Movie” world. Your still shots have always “Captured the Moment” and for some of us pseudo shutterbugs we can always use your advice.
    This all coming from a canon Guy

    Hilarious. 🙂
    I’m glad you had a nice trip here, Mr. Krist. Despite of stupid politicians we have, Indonesia is really a good country and Java is pretty exotic place to stay.
