The bus trip from Surabaya to Malang Sitting in a bus is not something that I do with the greatest love. However every once in a while I will still do something that I don't want to do every single day. After the flight from Yogyakarta to Surabaya in the early morning, I didn't reach my final destination for the day - by far. But fortunately I had already taken that into account when I booked the ticket. At that time I decided to use only public transport to find my way to Malang, which was my final destination for the day.

Juanda, a beautiful new airport near Surabaya Several years ago I was there for the last time - at that time it was the first time as well - at the airport of Surabaya. A small building which was far too small for the number of passengers that had to be served from the airport there. A common problem at airports, especially in the western part of Indonesia where the airline industry has grown incredibly in recent years following the startup of a number of new routes flown by several different airlines.

A Wings Air flight in the early morning I had to get quite early this time, around four o'clock in the morning. That time is better known here as subuh, about the time at which the first prayer of the day for Muslims is held. However the alarm from my cell phone - no need for a buzzer or watch - was set at exactly four o'clock, I woke up just a few minutes earlier. In the background I could already hear some mosques uttering their first call for prayer at this early time. However that is no reason for me to get up this early, catching a plane is.

The hunt for Adam Air flight 574 It was a fairly normal beginning of the new year, for as far the first day of the year can be a normal one. The sun was shining here and the weather looked good for the day. Maybe a little bit strange, since we are in the middle of the wet season here so in fact we have to expect a lot of rain almost every single day now. The weather is slightly strange since there is really bad weather of the Java Sea. From Southern Sumatra until as far east at the Moluccan Spice Islands the weather is bad; very high waves, strong winds and a lot of rain are pounding the area. At first you think that that is not a big deal there out at sea, at least there will be no victims in flash floods, landslides and other misery that comes with the wet season in Indonesia.

On several different occasions, I travelled by train over Jawa. Some of the trips were made in the evening or at night, so there wasn’t much to see except some white lights from distant villages and every once in a while a train station where we made a short stop to let other trains pass, since most of the rail network still is single-lined.

In the midst of a true anti-teroris atmosphere I was leaving for Jakarta today. Very early in the morning (read in the night) polisi was driving around Bogor with a hurry. The newspapers now reported that they are behind several terrorists in Surabaya, the same is happening with those in Bogor, because the police were in a hurry for a mass-arrest. I don’t know whether they actually found someone, probably they arrested a few for display in “Patrolli”.

In the very early hours of a day in july, 2000, we left home in Pondok Labu for a five-day trip to Yogyakarta. With we I mean Fifi, one of my relations in Indonesia and myself. We would go there to visit Candi Borobudur and Candi Prambanan, and to have pleasant stay outside Jakarta for a few days. That early morning already meant a surprise to me. Jakarta could be quiet like a rural area as well, but you had to go out very early. And that would not be the last surprise.
