The last minutes of the dry season It is October 8, 2008 in the morning when I prepare myself for a trip to the neighboring city of Solo. I do this because there are still some stamps missing in my albums. I do not collect points here, converted to money they are worth almost nothing and that 50 Rupiah discount on a bottle of iced tea of 3.500 Rupiah is something I am not waiting for as well. Those stamps however, I would like to have, so it occasionally occurs that I have to do some more effort for them than just the short trip to the local main post office downtown, at the other side of 'Malioboro'.

Indonesia: Release peaceful demonstrators in Papua The Indonesian government should immediately release more than a dozen Papuans detained for raising the Papuan "Morning Star" flag in Fakfak, a major city in western Papua, Human Rights Watch said today. Human Rights Watch called on the Indonesian government to launch an investigation into the excessive use of force by the Indonesian police, who beat and kicked the activists during the arrests on July 19, 2008. "Once again, the Indonesian authorities have stopped Papuans from peacefully expressing their political views," said Elaine Pearson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch. "The police should not resort to violence to suppress political activism."

Executions are the new hype in Indonesia Two members from one family, mother Sumiarsih (59) and son Sugeng (43), were executed earlier this month after they had been on death row for an astonishing twenty years. They were sentenced to death in the 1980's over a murder on five members of their own family out of vengeance. After twenty years in prison, they names - and their story - reappeared in the news once again. The end of their story was clear for almost twenty years already, but it just did never materialize. Probably someone did not like cleaning his office, so these two death row candidates were only executed by firing squad earlier this month.

The first plane It was less than one week before it really happened. I was in Kuala Lumpur to settle some official stuff, and when drinking an iced tea I took some time off in the evening to visit a friend. It was getting late and however we usually only 'speak' to each other on the internet, we had some serious issues as well. Sometimes it's best to make a small joke about accidents and disasters. The people on board of the missing Adam Air plane are having a splendid time diving there, things like that, whether they are fun or not. As long as it doesn't happen in your own direct environment, you can still say things like that. I also told that I always missed such events; earthquakes when I'm away; other disasters beyond my easy reach and other things like that.

A boat trip from Bali to Lombok Only for the first time since 1999, I was about to make some boat trips. After planning a trip by motor from Yogya all the way to Sumbawa Besar (yes, on Sumbawa island), I soon discovered there was no road all the way, but there were some stretches of sea to cross as well. By plane was one option, but then I had to check in my motorbike several times. I didn't even think about using a plane, since it was most likely a lot of work arrange six flights to and back from some of Indonesia's eastern islands.
