Just a quick update on my baby bros status: he is alive and well living the high life in Indonesia. We have been informed by the company he is doing research for down there that everyone in camp is still in the jungle (no Internet) and that all is well. He will be contacting us when he arrives on the marine, in about 3 weeks.
Yay! I was so worried, I thought I would be backpacking through Indonesia with Kaiya strapped on tight asking the locals "have you seen this man?".
