Indonesia and Burma and Restless Dreams as Summer Winds Down

I am fascinated by shadow puppets and marionettes. I started collecting them in while in graduate school with a dream of someday visiting Java, Bali and Burma (Myanmar). That dream is yet unfulfilled but planning has begun and will have to include a trip to Borneo too.
