Painting by Gilbert Tan


My friend Gilbert from Singapore (I know, it's not in Indonesia, but...) is a most remarkable person. He has gone through many difficult things but he is still a very positive person. The beautiful picture to the right is a painting he has done with his mouth! You find this painting and many more beautiful ones on his Web site, where you also can read his very touching story.

  • Did you by the way know, that Herge's well known cartoon hero Tintin visits Indonesia in one of his adventures, namely Flight 714.
  • The highest mountain in the world situated on an island is Puncak Jaya with its 5030 m (16503 ft).
  • One of the most well-known volcano eruption was that of Krakatau, located in the Sunda Strait, between Java and Sumatera, which literally exploded in 1883 killing 36000 people.

  • Wim Meeus, a Belgian guy, who visited Indonesia in 1997, has a site with a lot of beautiful pictures. (He told me to add that most of the pictures are taken by Sammy Martens.)
    He has also some interesting pictures from Malaysia in 1996.
