This is professional photographer Josh Estey, and he lives in Bali with his family. He’s originally from California but has been living in Indonesia for the last ten years doing work for several organizations, including Every Mother Counts on our trip. I loved watching him work because I learned so much. He’s also got the CRAZIEST stories, so I told him to get a blog. In the meantime, I’ll just tell you this: he may or may not have gotten into a cab in Jakarta only to have his cab driver DIE while they were going full speed and headed for a corner. But he’d been chased by a man with a sword once, so no biggie.
