On a day with no surf, an island scooter ride was a good distraction and the source of one of my favorite travel images. My crew at the Roti Island renting scooters. Note the lit cigarette. Noted photographer Jay Maisel told me he always leaves his camera turned on and lens cap off to capture those special moments, this was one of those.
BTW, scooter rentals in remote Indonesia consists of one guy rounding up his friends bikes and then negotiating a rate. The problem on this day was the only lady who sold fuel on the island was out, so we brought our own from the boat.
