We’re tucked up at anchor once again as the storm clouds come rolling in overland during this transition period when the weather is always irritable until the coming monsoon settles in.
While anchored at Tarakan, Kalimantan, we took some time off (after some difficult sailing) to relax and explore.
We have never been welcomed before with such enthusiasm and openness.
In the town, mangroves and fishing villages, we were greeted with smiles and laughter. Random people in the street on foot, riding bicycles, in cars or trucks, on scooters, and others from boats shouted: “Hello Mister” (at both of us). But nowhere was the welcome more enthusiastic than from the women in the laundry.
We felt like A-list celebrities!
