You cannot mistake the religion  of this area. Five times a day, we would hear the Imam sing from loudspeakers of nearby mosques. I loved it.

Our WWF companion Sugiyanta or Mas Sugi as everyone called him, brought Yogi to an old Mosque in Binongko. After getting permission from the Imam for Yogi to photograph their prayers, Sugi disappeared to his own praying world.

I know ffrom Sugi that we all pray for the same universal thing. We both pray for safety, good health, happiness, peace . . .
