Impressions of Indonesia (Bali, Sumatra)

The Repuplic of Indonesia is the most popoulous nation of Southeast Asia and with a population of more than 230 Million (in 2004) the fourth most populous overall. It is the world's largest archipelago consisting of about 18,000 islands (of which about 6,000 are inhabited). The islands are scattered around the equator, giving the country a tropical climate.
The pictures are taken on a journey in 1996, which took me and my wife to Bali and Sumatra.
