President Medvedev shows off with 'Bhinneka Tunggal Ika'-coin What does the Indonesian government know what we don't know (yet)? When surfing on the internet I found a small article on the website of Bloomberg stating that Russian President Medvedev was showing off a coin which is said to be a possible future release. Normally those kind of 'news articles' do only make it as far as internet back-rooms where you can gossip about the upcoming New World Order and things related to that. Sometimes funny to read, but to take it seriously? No, nothing for me.

A deserted Kuta in November I have to admit, it is somewhere far outside any holiday season in the middle of November, maybe that will help create the almost deserted Kuta around this time of year. It was a short trip of about one hour from the beating cultural and religious heart of Bali, Ubud. With a virtually blue sky I left the spiritual village on a rented Mio (scooter), heading for the hot lowlands and crowds of Southern Bali. That crowd was a relative thing here, but seen from Ubud almost everything in the outside world looks crowded.

One day aboard KRI Dewaruci It was about a week ago, at a Saturday morning, that I was thinking about whether I should to all the way to Amsterdam to have a look at some boats, because that's in fact wat Sail 2005 had to offer, a long line of boats, moored to the city's cays. Most of them open for public, so ordinary people were also able to take a look aboard. One of those ships was the Indonesian tall-ship KRI Dewaruci, a ship that is used by TNI-AL (The naval forces of the Indonesian Army) for training purposes. I hadn't seen the ship before, but going there just for that is a little too much. A quick look at their website and I wrapped up my stuff to go out anyway.
