  • About Ujung Kulon: The final Chapter

    We arrived in Tamanjaya thinking our car would await us and we would go straight back home. Far from the truth this thought was. Our driver hadn’t arrived yet, but we didn’t worry yet. We did our business like paying for the guide and the boat and getting a free lunch – to get the […]

  • About Ujung Kulon: Green Part 3

But you really enjoy walking straight forward with no hinderance. But […]
