Jakarta by way of Papua New Guinea

My flight was supposed to take me from San Francisco to Hong Kong, and then on to Jakarta. But when I got off my 14 hour flight to Hong Kong, I learned that a "quick" trip to Papua New Guinea had been arranged. So long story short, over a 5 day period, I spent 4 in the air. It was worth it, though. My trip to PNG was a dramatic start to my East Asia adventures, and reminded me of the fantastic experiences I had there 10 years ago on a Mountain Travel/Sobek vacation. I made it to Jakarta on October 24th, and have been luxuriating in my gorgeous hotel - the Dharmawangsa. Keep it in mind if you ever plan a trip here. Image courtesy of Wikipedia
