Set Foot in the Land of Four Kings

An interesting article as the title above, today in the Kompas newspaper, wrote a series of photographs and notes by Ricky Pesik, an advertising professional and diving enthusiasts - on an area to the east of Indonesia's dazzling, Raja Ampat (means four kings), West Papua.

The article begins with a quote from Jacques Cousteau, "The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever." Of course it is about Raja Ampat, all expressions of the sea for the reflection of our humanity.

As written on the note, that almost in the Raja Ampat area largely untouched territory of modern civilization. Presented beauty truly original and a natural grace.

In a place like this would we be able to celebrate the best of human ability to build civilization, keeping what one has the Earth for the benefit of all mankind.

Without insulation, no difference.

No phone signal. Without motor vehicles. Without the air conditioning. Without formal fashion latest trends. Without all the frills of modern products, we are often easier to find the humanity in ourselves.

Such as Edward Abbey said, "Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit."


Raja Ampat where this place is?
