Thanks for a great adventure so far.
Welcome and thanks for the comments. I wasn't sure how that sort of stuff would go over so it's good to get a positive comment about it. For me the food is a huge part of the trip, I love finding good quality fresh food with the special local flair as described in the Bamboo Cafe experience. That dish would command prices north of $50 a sitting in Australia and here I had it for less than a fifth of that. In Maumere I had a soto ayam from a mobile warung (chicken soup from a food cart) and a pancake filled with crunchy peanut butter and honey from the warung next door. It was all delicious and cost a measly $1.50 all up, $1 for the soup and 50 cents for the pancake with a couple of small fried bananas thrown in.
I'm lost, I've gone to look for myself, if I should return before I get back, have me wait.
