A Scooter's View

A couple days ago I got brave and zap strapped my camera to the front of my scooter to try and film a time-lapse of our town. Although I missed the 'downtown' section with all of its interesting sites, I think this gives a bit of a glimpse of what it looks like here when the traffic isn't too bad. We hope you enjoy!

  1. Interesting; looks very lush. Very narrow streets and lots of scooters on the roads. Looks like you passed by the gate of that temple you had shown pics of before. What's the average speed on those roads? Maria Barber

  2. I went close to that temple site but didn't go up the street :)
    I'd say the average is 30-50km's, in town 60km and over is really moving!

  3. Really enjoyed Scooter Cam! I didn't realize that you drive on the left in Indonesian. I agree everything looks lush. Is that a year round condition?

  4. It's the rainy season right now, so it's a little more lush than usual, I think (I've yet to experience the dry season). But it never gets arid here, that's for sure.

  6. It's just hard not to sing while opening up the scooter throttle :)
