Two Scenes Not In Malaysia

As I mentioned before, I am now not in Malaysia.

Time for an old game. Here are two clues for where I am spending part of this year's Chinese New Year's holiday week:

tree and an old church in the background

mountains, tropical trees, and a river with a setting sun

Any guesses?

The last time I tried this, the first person to identify the location was a reader in Zoetermeer, Netherlands. I think the above photos present a trickier case, unless you have happened to visit here before. So I'll add one more small clue. The church in the first photo is no longer a place for religious services.

Tomorrow as I recover from a little too much sun (I was better prepared for the mosquitos), I hope to reply to some recent comments from readers. More soon.

UPDATE: More scenes here.


  1. I am going to guess somewhere in Java. At first I was thinking Ambon but then it would be in use ... I think.

    1. Good guess, especially since I nearly ended up in Java for the holiday. But I headed elsewhere instead...

  2. Are you golfing at Pebble Beach?

    1. Nice.

      For what it's worth, I don't think there's a golf course anywhere nearby. Plus, I doubt sea level will be rising by a kilometer anytime soon.
