Ready to Go!

We leave for Indonesia one week from today. I can't quite believe it. Before our concert last weekend, Nathan went shopping for a pair of antique cymbals like the ones Ananda Sukarlan calls for in the second song of "Love and Variations." In the past we've borrowed from the University, but we needed our own set to take on tour. Now that the trio owns our own cymbals, I feel like we're official!

The cymbals aren't the only thing we needed for tour. Visas have been secured, immunizations given, and lots of details worked out (which the huge help of Aryo's mother working for us back in Indonesia). Now about all we have to do is pack lightly and hit the road! We'll be blogging as much as possible from our hotels in Indonesia, so please keep up with us and our adventures.

Below is our tour itinerary. Read more about our Peace Tour, and follow links to our various sponsor organizations, on the Peace Tour page of our website.
