Indonesia Research Photos

I am suddenly craving a return to Indonesia now that we are in the deep of winter here in Ithaca. I also have not been to Southeast Asia since 2014, which is the longest I have gone since my first trip to Thailand and Vietnam in 2006. I am overdue. Well, a return trip to Indonesia or elsewhere will have to wait since I am destined to finish the dissertation this semester. In the meantime, some nostalgia through these photos will have to suffice.
