Indonesia, Vicki is greeted by wonderful people.

Active and engaged people enrich my days.

Enjoying a digital moment on the metro, Jakarta.

A tasty meal from a local street vendor, Jakarta.

A beautiful face on the beautiful person who shared her car with me, Tana Toraja.

Transporting harvested rice. 

A busy time at a local animal market, Rantepao, Sulawesi. 

Celebrations are special times, like this funeral ceremony in Tana Toraja. 

And any time is special with a live local dance performance. 

Sanur, Bali.

Indonesia, Vicki is marveled by places outside the clay studio.

Enthralling images unfold before my eyes.

Volcanic islands create a hiker's paradise, like this volcano near Tasikmalaya, West Java. 

Mt. Ijen Volcano, East Java, dawn. 

With over 17,000 Islands, the sea is never far away. 

The coast by Yogyakarta, Central Java. 

A rich history has created some of the most spectacular temples in the world.  
Borodubur, the largest Buddhist temple in the world, 9th century.

A beckoning face may appear just around the corner,

or behind the abundant displays of tropical fruits,

or the ubiquitous snacks for sale,

or working on a batik.

Sunsets over the water are always special.

Ketapang, Kalimantan. 

The tropical rainforests are a feast for the eyes, 
with every shade of green imaginable in the forest canopy.

The unique architecture of Tana Toraja is stunning.

Rice barns, Tana Toraja, Sulawesi. 

Family dwelling, Tana Toraja. 

Cave graves, Tana Toraja.

Cave burial sites with the coffins' transport.

Temple carvings are magnificent. 

Monkey Forest, Ubud, Bali. 

As are phenomenally gorgeous rice fields and terraces. 

Seascapes are mesmerizing.

Sanur, Bali.

Tana Lot, Bali

And a sunset over a temple bestows tranquility.
