Protecting Indonesia’s Sharks thumbnail

Here’s how a chain reaction works — Meihoukai goes to see Blackfish, a documentary about Orcas in captivity, and can’t stop thinking about it; Meihoukai rents Free Willy, a movie about a little boy who releases an Orca from captivity back into the ocean; Meihoukai remembers that she never posted about the shark release she photographed…

Remember that surprise I mentioned last week? Well if you follow me on Instagram you know that it already arrived in the form of a very tall, very charming Danish dude. When Anders and I said goodbye in Bali we weren’t sure when we would see each other again, as he was heading back to Denmark…
