Overview

It was the year 2000 and the sixth of nine journeys in the And There I Was series was underway-Sulawesi-sandwiched by stays in Bali for R&R, one of only a few of Indonesia's 14,000 islands not wracked by religious strife. More of mankind's senseless bloodletting, there were few places left in the world where one could escape it. Bali was one. Sulawesi was not. Feel the unbearable heat and humidity of coastal Ujung Pandang, explore the culture of the Toraja people in the Central Highlands, attend, as guests of honor, a traditional funeral and visit an authentic witch doctor in search of a cure. Descend into the chaos and human tragedy of the North and live the terror of being trapped in a city awaiting an attack from religious zealots as darkness descends. Experience the harrowing escape that ensues. Die a thousand deaths aboard a small ferry miles from land in a raging storm then spend long days lost to the world on a truly paradisaical island. See a land beautiful beyond description and proof that man can never be happy even when given everything.
