3/11/2016: We took the ferry back over to Ternate from Sofifi. This time, the locals had seen enough of the eclipse crowd, and no one wanted to take my photo. Some TV guys from Jakarta did invite me to interview on their television show whenever I ended up in Jakarta. Sorry guys, flight goes directly to Singapore. In Ternate, we started a game where we ranked some of the crazy motorcycle driving.
