Join this journey absorbing customs and cultures on Garuda’s turf in Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand, and Malaysia and witnessing historical moments of our time. From Shiite refugees in Madura, pigs running temples in Cambodia, a Bali slaughterhouse, Java’s sex trade in a Surabaya cemetery and Sumbawa’s Pompeii of the East to Thai bombings, rat attack, MH370 in Malaysia, and a miner from New Zealand loose in Indonesia’s West Java, once Garuda books his ticket to South East Asia for a grunge fix, no secret is safe…
People ask us “What is it like over there?” Fair warning, this is the answer, so it contains florid descriptions of sex and violence that might overexcite some readers, and a “must carry” when you are traveling to an exotic destination – it’s your guide to no don’t, don’t, don’t do it…
