Hey! This sounds like a great trip!

I have a challenge for any of those who go on this trip:

In Surabaya there is a giant statue in the middle of town depicting the town's namesake: a giant crocodile fighting a giant shark. (according to legend, a giant shark and giant crocodile fought each other to the death in the river that flows through town, dying the river permanently red with their blood). Near the statue and around the town, they sell miniature replicas of the statue. I did not purchase one during my trip there years ago, and I am constantly filled with regret. Anyone who brings one back for me will earn my endless respect and a handsome reward.

Have fun!

Hi Peter,
Sorry to say that this trip has been canceled. The SCAI worked very hard with the RG to put together a wonderful and very educational itinerary, but alas, we did not have enough people sign up. Perhaps we will be able to offer it again in the future.

But I hope you get your statue eventually! Maybe someone at SCAI can hook you up!
