[Travel to Sumbawa]
On to Indonesia.   Upon the completion of the two days at Tampakan in Mindanao, the group departed on the morning of Saturday 16 October to fly on to Lombok in Indonesia over the weekend, via Manila, Singapore and Jakarta (overnight) to arrive in Mataram on the afternoon of Sunday 17 October.   After the hectic 6 days of the tour to date, the group was able to take an easy afternoon and evening at Senggigi beach (top-centre) tasting the local food (top left) before departing at 06:30 am next morning to drive across Lombok (lower-left) from Mataram on the west coast to Kayangan on the northeast, in a convoy of modern cars (top-right).   There they took the ferry (lower-right) across the Alas Strait for a 1 hour 15 minute passage to Benete on the southwest coast of Sumbawa, to be met by PT Newmont Nusa Tenggara staff and transferred to the companys offices for a safety induction.
