Crossing the Wallace Line

Author: Hillary Strasser
Location: Trewangan, Indonesia
Immediately following breakfast we motored off of the Benoa dock to begin our 50 nm motor to the island of Trewangan. It felt good to be on the water again after our days ashore - but our trip went incredibly fast as we were carried straight to Gili (Northwest of Bali) by a current. As we motored through the Lombok Straights we crossed the Wallace Line. In Marine Biology class today we discussed the beginning of the theory of evolution and how this exact location played a monumental role. We anchored off the shore of Trewangan before dinner and watched a beautiful sunset. Tomorrow we will go scuba diving and explore shore.

Hi - I came to this site from BlogCatalog. It's a really nice blog; the topic and content are great, and the pics and videos are awesome. I would suggest though that you could use a sidebar with a link to an info page on the blog for those of us who are unfamiliar with your purpose but not interested enough to check out your main site. I am speaking from experience because we have the same issue on our blog. Also, info about your authors would be great!

Also, your profile on BlogCatalog doesn't seem very informative - in fact it is written to seem like something totally different. Check it out: http://www.blogcatalog.com/blogs/day-elephant.html
