Indonesian Village Kids Showing off Snakes

Traveling by public transportation in remote parts of Indonesia means a lot of waiting around. Waiting for the bus to show up, waiting for the bus driver to finish lunch, waiting for aunty drinking her tea before getting in the bus. All this waiting can drive you insane if you don’t know how to entertain yourself.

I found one of the best ways to entertain myself and pass the time on yet another half hour stop is to get off the bus. Walk down the street and find out what the local kids are up too. Remember this is rural Indonesia and life happens outside.

You don’t need to go far to find Kids laughing, playing and having fun. Just take part in the fun and see what happens. Just be careful if you are handed a plastic bottle and told to open it. You might scream as loud as I did when five snakes come racing out of the bottle.

Now it’s your turn, what’s your favorite way of passing time on long bus rides?
