Photos from Sumatra

A typical country home.

A typical family car

They fill up the family car at gas stations like this:

And drive past huge palm plantations that stretch on for miles and miles:

and past traffic hazards like the vendor pushing his cart along the road

and trucks creeping uphill on bad roads.

Of course, if your tire goes flat, just stop and change it in the road like everybody else.

Animal Life

And sitting on the ground, the well camouflaged night hawk freezes
- until the danger is past. Then it flies away to distract predators from its nest.

Lew is attacked by a savage Rhino. OK, a rhinoceros beetle. And despite its fearsome appearance, it is harmless.
