I was bouncing around in a pickup truck on a dirt strip along the Timor coast last weekend -- listening to the music on my flash key as I was dodging mud holes.

One of those songs, that I had forgotten was on the flash, was by Toni Childs. So, here I am driving right by the seashore when her song "Where's the Ocean" comes on. She just kept singing "where's the ocean, where's the ocean, where's the ocean."

I guess it was the juxtaposition of the song and where I was at that moment -- I suddenly burst out laughing. It just seemed so ridiculous.
Why the ocean is right here! You can see the white pickup in the distance.
