Here, he paints a picture of a diverse and exotic Indonesia. Traveling by train, bus, boat, and plane during the late 1980s and early 1990s, he experiences the good and the bad of Indonesia. He relates his experiences on Komodo Island, home to the large predatory lizard; among the cannibals of TelukBantini, who dissect their victims with bone knives; in Jakarta, teeming with transvestites and the poor; on the Borneo waterway, whose banks of giant orchids and trees are laced with pythons; and on the Barito River, whose water is the color of blood. Recommended for large travel collections on the basis of Corn's engrossing anecdotes. Quantity Available: 1. ISBN: 0670823740. ISBN/EAN: 9780670823741.
