Pickpocketed at the Busway It was about to happen of course. But for the first time in ten years Indonesia it happened on a place where I could expect it the most. On the Jakarta Busway. It was a rush hour trip from Halte Bunderan HI to terminal Blok M. I traveled during rush hour because I had a scheduled birthday to attend in southern Jakarta at seven. I would not make it, but that was less of a problem.

A goodbye to the kampung After a day or four, which was a few days back by now, it was time to go back home to the 'civilized world', however that is a wrong choice of words if you ask me. My girlfriend and I decided that four days was enough, above all it was a 'mere' eight hours shaking by bus and 55.000 Rupiah to get here, so it was not something impossible if you want to go.

The easy life in the kampung The long trip by bus lay behind us when we arrived at what we called home at half past three in the night. Most of the family stayed awake to greet us, so not to be rude I sat down on the wooden bench to eat something. After that it was soon time to excuse me to catch some sleep. I just wanted to go along with the rest here, so getting up early is something obligatory. Of course there is the understanding that I didn't have much sleep, so I could get some sleep without any problems.

Moving? Yes, but not to the Netherlands After I wrote an article recently, some people thought that I was about to return to the Netherlands. Indeed I was in the Netherlands and indeed I was about to move. Whether I put these two facts in one article on purpose or not, it were two things that played an important role at that moment. Both of them have been rounded off properly though and it wasn't that hard after all.

I wanted to get the key first, but no key at the place where it should be. And then; no motorbike there. Oops, what had gone wrong and where is the thing?

Ruling Indonesia from behind the scenes; MUI moves again They did it again. After they managed to get some 500 percent duty in all imported liquor - a draconian measure that is currently killing people daily, but 'religion above everything' seems to be the motto of the MUI - they now managed to stop beef imports from New Zealand all together. Some imports from Australia have been banned as well. This means a big part of the 70.000 tonnes of beef will not be imported anymore.

New Lion Air website even more crappy than before It has been quite some time ago since I last flew with Lion Air. This is caused by the fact that Wings Air is a 100% daughter-company of Lion Air. Lion Air itself is currently renewing it's fleet with Boeing planes, but Wings Air is the trash can of Lion Air. They still operate two MD-82 planes built in 1982 which are in poor condition; PK-WIL and PK-WIK are just too dangerous to fly with if you ask me. It's amazing that they didn't crash already.

Welcome in Indonesia! Do you have chocolate? 'Welcome back in Indonesia' is what I first thought when I arrived from Kuala Lumpur with AirAsia flight AK 392. Before that I was in the air for another 12 hours on a flight from Amsterdam, but flying with KLM does not give me any sensation that I am actually flying towards Asia, that feeling only came when I walked out from the plane.
