Bajau tribe South East Sulawesi

the thing that attracted me to Southeast Sulawesi Islands is watching the BBC’s human planet documentary a few years ago when my parents were visiting me in DC.

i watched the Bajau fisherman, Sulbin, freedive to 20 meters to catch a fish and hold the breath 2.5 minutes!

This is one of their villages

This is about 1000 miles east of Jakarta .. no cell no WiFi .. just sea and flying fish .. and forest islands.. just plain blue ocean and islands
