Lately, there has been a trend on forums discussing "what gifts to bring to Indonesia?" When arriving in an anchorage, it's not just about distributing freebies. From our perspective, gifts should be a way to connect with the community, reward good deeds, or trade for services, goods, or produce. We avoid giving money as it may lead communities to perceive cruisers as an easy target. Visits from fishermen and their children are not unusual. If you give gifts for free be prepared to welcome many boats once the word gets out. In Indonesia, the market is flooded with inexpensive Chinese ..read more

For the 3 boats it was a total of 20 million and 8 Passports. We dropped the mooring lines in Wanci-Wanci, Wakatobi to head to Pasarwajo on the eastern coastline on the Island of Buton. This is a scheduled stop for the Indonesian Rally, we though will be taking it as a stop to get our Visa extensions done in BauBau a two hour drive across the peninsula.
