Javan Pond-Heron (Ardeola speciosa)

Big city



2/24/2016: I arrived on the plane from Singapore as the title holder for "Tallest Person on the Plane", not that I am especially tall. Some kind of water purifier convention involving red, white, and blue suit coats may have taken place in Singapore.

I finally got my luggage, and with no plan got in the car with a guy who approached me at the airport for a trip to Malino.

The traffic was quite heavy, and it took awhile to get out of Makassar.
