Last Leg

The cashier at Starbucks in the Makassar airport gave Liam a cup written “Laim” on the back. Ah the misspelled Starbucks name, a universal Starbucks trait.

On Air Garuda I realized too late that I had been eating next to a woman observing Ramadan. In Muslim culture it is rude to eat in front of someone fasting, in any religion for that matter I would suppose. I met 2 Maltese students, 1 Aussi, and 5 Brits at the airport- also future research assistants. Upon arrival at Baubau, I also discovered the Mandy- the standard restroom of the East, equipped with a large fresh water tub for rinsing and a hole in the ground for the rest.
