Thom Stead is another Fulbright ETA here in Indonesia. There are three especially cool things about Thom:
1. He lives in Ohio (Cincinnati).
2. He went to college in Indiana (Earlham).
3. He has a sub-blog in his blog (http://semasemasemarang.blogspot.com) of Things on Motorbikes.
In Eat Pray Love, Elizabeth Gilbert calls the motorbike "the minivan of Indonesia." It's so true.
So I stole it to share with all of you. He said I could.
