BIZARRE Gun Trade in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

Sometimes life out here is a bit crazy. This was one of those nights. We had run out of options on where to anchor. Dusk was upon us and we had to pull over. Almost immediately after dark all these fishermen started fishing around us. Why here? Why now? It just didn’t make sense. Well it didn’t take long for them to come up to us. Turns out they were using underwater flashlights and an air compressor to shoot fish at night (not to mention dynamite to stun the fish). What initially seemed like a dangerous situation turned out to be one of our most memorable moments in Indonesia to date. Hope you enjoy this one!

BE BRAVE. BE BOLD.

Wow you two! A great example of being Bold and Brave. Love the way your unexpected night visitors turned into a robust trading opportunity. Keep exploring for us! If you need a temporary home for your spear gun, we’d be delighted to store it.
So happy for you – Nancy and Rob on SV Shindig

Ash and Ben – great video. I’ve been waiting for you to get to Indo. I’ve spent years traveling all over the country and its such a great place in many ways. Your interaction is just so typical of Indo. I really encourage you to learn some bahasa Indonesia – its such a simple language and will go so far for you. I’m not sure if you can see my email i had to just fill out below ot comment but if you can feel free to send me an email and i’ll make you up a list of phrases and words that will come in handy. 🙂 Enjoy Indonesia!
