Indonesia drives on the left

Amando, driving on the left side of the road

I rode a friend’s dirtbike a couple times when I was 16. Flash forward ten years when I almost crashed my friend Alan’s Vespa into a car in the same driveway. That was my last attempt on two wheels before renting a scooter and putting my fiancee on the back. The guy who rented it to me ($9 total for 3 days plus gas) though explained how to honk the horn (very necessary) and how to store the helmets.  I asked where the gas tank was he looked at me with one skeptical eyebrow raised and said, “Why don’t you try first?”  I went about 30 shaky feet before he yelled stop and Erika hopped on saying, “you know you were on the wrong side of the road, right?” Indonesia drives on the left. But wait, there’s more

Foodie Friday

Enjoying our 75 cent lunch in Jogyakarta

We LOVE to eat.  We love food. We love talking about food, eating great food, cooking nice meals, and telling stories of meals we’ve eaten with others.  As such, we introduce you to Foodie Friday, where we bring you gastronomic delights from half way around the globe.

Just because we are on a tight budget doesn’t mean we aren’t eating well.  In fact, cheap, good food is one of the reasons we came over to this part of the world.  Indonesia has been filled so far with lots of fruit, rice, noodles, curries, chicken, pork and fish. But wait, there’s more!
