Lake surrounded by forests... and terrorists!



2/27/2016: After the flight arrived late, I got into a car to travel to Wuasa. On the way to Wuasa, the driver became ill with flu-like symptoms. We arrived late at night after his bouts of vomiting. The home stays in the area were mostly full due to some military operations in the area. My room was full of mosquitoes and then the mosque across the street started up at 3:30AM.

We still managed to make it to the Lake Tambing area at sunrise. The restaurant in town had tofu AND tempeh!

2/28/2016: Also heard the Spectacled Boobook calling before dawn.
