Incredible journey

Lynda Graham recalls a rooftop ride to Indonesia.

In 1986, after travelling from Korea by way of Japan, China, Burma and Malaysia, my friend Joy and I, who were backpacking around the world, found ourselves in a tiny fishing port in Indonesia's Sulawesi, seemingly at a dead end. The sole road led back to where we had come from and there were no passenger ferries any more. Eventually, we learnt that a boat was due to leave for Borneo across the Makasan Straits. The captain reluctantly agreed to take us, but made it clear that there was no space other than on the roof.
