Day and night at the alun-alun in Malang During the last year I regularly brought a visit to Malang. There I visited a Dutch friend who had stayed in Indonesia some years more than I did, and please read that 'some' as a big understatement. It doesn't really matter in fact, however someone who has lived here for so many years can be a huge source of information about many subjects. He sure is for me at least. Every once in a while I can learn from specific situations which still make me go 'huh?'. Outside that I like to spend some of my time there at a somewhat crowded place. Like in many cities and villages that is the central square or alun-alun. Often a nice place to submerge yourself entirely in the local situation and current events.

The luxury of a swimming pool in your hotel After the trip by train and a nice glass of teh hangat (see "Lodaya Malam to Bandung, trains run on time") it was time to continue our trip. We didn't reach our goal for the day, however it wasn't that far anymore. We had to end up at the Jayakarta hotel which was located in the northern part of Bandung. We realized that a free nights' stay in the hotel would not come totally free of course. I can admit - without any feeling of shame - that I don't want to spend my money on that kind of hotels. The 'free' part is a very important part in this story.

Lodaya Malam to Bandung, trains run on time It is half past two in the afternoon on a warm Tuesday afternoon at the start of the wet monsoon. No guarantee for rain however, it has been strange weather for over a week now in Yogyakarta and elsewhere in Java it seems to be more of the same. The wind blows from the wrong direction I was told. Maybe that is just good, because that would mean I could have a dry trip to Bandung. However using the train is less reliable on the weather than flying, it is still prone to various delays.
