My last week has been beautiful, I left Manado and decided to go to Bunaken Island. I stayed in a little homestay recommended to me by several people called Danielle Homestay, in a very sweet little bungalow right on the beach. Although this island did not have the same charm as the Togean Islands, the coral reefs here are amazing, and rated as one of the top ten dive sites in the world. My first day out snorkeling, I saw a the biggest turtle I have ever seen, the biggest tuna I have ever seen, and a beautiful reef shark. Every day was an adventure in the water, colorful corals and even more colorful fish. My last day on the island, I went on a day hike with the dive master who's from Germany, and we took out a canoe and paddled around, ate at the house of the owner of the boat, and waited out a thunderstorm on somebodys front porch in the jungle on the way home.. I flew to Jakarta yesterday, and decided to treat myself to a massage today, 2 hours for about $23, and a really really good massage. I'm pretty sure if I lived here I would get a massage...every day. :) So I leave tomorrow morning, sigh, and just when I'm getting into the groove of my traveling. I already have my next trip to Indonesia planned out however, this will not be the last time that I'm here.  So before I get really stupidly sappy, because I am feeling  slightly emotional, I will stop. When I get home and actually read the manual for my camera, I will send an e-mail of some photos, so until then.....much love.
