8/18/2003: Indonesian kids bite coins

I guess this is one way to keep the kids out of your hair for awhile. Apparently, the the oil doesn't taste all that good by looking at the face of the kid on the right. Or else, he just busted a tooth. Those coins look like they are jammed in there pretty good. Just goes to show what kids will do for a few bucks (coins) these days!

Don't know about you all, but I've been to Indonesia- Bali a few times now and the kids are so lovely, but watch out for your pockets. They are always asking for Australian gold coins, they melt them down to make jewellery, then sell them back to the tourists. So if in Bali don't purchase anything supposedly made from real gold.

What are the Strine gold coins made of, Leah?

I'm not really sure Bruce, have to look it up on the net under Australian Mint. They are pretty and shiny when new and look like real gold.

Havent they ever heard of bobbing for apples, and are Indonesian women that bad that you would have to do this for fun.

y'know, if I were dirt poor (and I'm about two steps away from that), I think I could find some way to entertain myself with rocks and sticks and whatnot that didn't involve getting filthy motor oil all in my mouth...
