Bali -- Transportation

The motor scooter is the major form of transportation in Bali.
This is not a recommended transport for the uninitiated.

Lined up, ready to dart into traffic.

 Young schoolgirl on her way home.

This nursing mother zipped by so quickly, I was unable to give you the full effect of a young mother, breast-feeding her baby with one hand and steering the motor scooter with the other.
Even our guide remarked, "That is dangerous!!"

A Sunny Day in Darwin

Darwin, in the north of Australia, is subject to continual wet weather, cyclones, and high humidity.
When we arrived, it was a perfect day.
We did a short sightseeing tour, plus a harbor cruise.
I am sorry I didn't go visit the crocodiles, but if you'd like to see them, click here.

Darwin had to be completely rebuilt after a cyclone in 1974.
