[chuck] in Other, Punggur, West Kalimantan

This is what it looks like when you come into the little town of Punggur on the coast of West Kalimantan by boat (see String of Pearls and Peat Farmer). Looks like low tide, and you have to climb up a ladder to get into town. I remember that there is a wonderful little "warung kopi", i.e. coffee shop, right on the pier. Strong, hot coffee served in a small glass with lots of sweetened condensed milk. [NOTE: Colors are muddy because the image was scanned from an old slide].
