Chris Burch, known for creating famous retail brands C. Wonder and Tory Burch, has bought a beach hostel on the Indonesian island of Sumba in 2012. It cost $30 million to renovate the hostel and reopen it as a five-star resort called Nihiwatu in 2015. What originally meant to be a place for his children turned into the best hotel in the world by Travel + Leisure in 2016, and for a good reason, too.

In a small village in southern Indonesia off the coast of the island of Lembata, the local fishermen battle whales and sharks from a very small wooden boat with sticks. They capture the fish by harpooning them with long spears, and then dismember them in the water because the whales are too heavy and large to pull aboard their small boat.

Yes, it’s true, it does exist in Indonesia. It is a known fact that in each country they adapt western dishes to their cultural preferences. In this case, we have burgers made from snakes and more precisely from cobras. You’ll see in pictures how they are done.

P.S. Apparently, it is very delicious. If I’m in Indonesia, I will definitely try it.

I thought I’ve seen it all… I was wrong.

This 2-year-old Indonesian boy Ardi Rizal is literally addicted to cigarettes. He even beats my father, smoking more than 40 cigarettes per day. And if parents refuse him a smoke, he becomes very angry and then bangs his head against the wall.

Gold Mining on the Island of Sulawesi in Indonesia (31 photos)

Posted by sym in Pictures 24 Feb 2010   / 8114 views

Sulawesi is one of the four larger Sunda Islands of Indonesia and is situated between Borneo and the Maluku Islands.
Huge deposits of gold have been found 250km of the capital in the Bombali District in 2008 and since then, it’s the gold rush and hundreds of people go there hoping to get rich!
Children quit school and work instead for 10-20 dollars a day, which I think is not too bad over there..
Here are some sad black and white photos showing a bit how things happen over there…

I want to show you how Indonesian miners who extract sulfur are working at the Ijen volcano in East Java.
They have to work in inhuman conditions and it is extremely dangerous to health. But what else can they do, there’s no other work in the region...
