Crazy Green and World Wide

I sent out Zoya's prize today. I meant to send it yesterday but was having trouble finding a box. Anyway I wrapped it up nice and neat. Oh she selected the Origami book.




So I go back to her e-mail to get the address to send her prize and guess where she is from?

Indonesia



How cool is that? It never ceases to amaze me when I find out I'm talking to someone in another country. It makes me wonder about the person on the other side of the connection. What is it like where they live?

Well thanks to google and other browers we can find out a little about other places. I got this information off of National Geographics Website.

Wooow..
Thx April, I'm waiting for the book :-)

It is surprising to know that you find out some information about Indonesia. Anyway, if you have time, come visit Indonesia. I'm sure you have heard about the beautiful Bali Island...

I would love to visit Indonesia. I don't get to travel as much as I use to and it's one of the places I haven't been yet.
