Overcrowded buses in Jakarta Overloaded they are and it is not just only on 'Halte Harmoni' where the situation is not really clear. There are even bigger exchange stops. One of the largest might just be 'Halte Senen', a little more to the north. This stop is situated directly at one of the corners of a busy intersection, directly under a fly-over. This is also the meeting point of a number of routes and transferring here is made difficult by hundreds of people that are finding their way here. That is not the only thing however what makes it a mess here.

After my few days left in Jogja after my week in Lombok, I'm back in Jakarta again. Yesterday I took the plane from Jogja to Jakarta to relax for the last few days, and to possibly meet some friends and other people here. Earlier on, I didn't know that some friends from Jogja, were about to go to Jakarta as well, but not by plane, by with the train. One of them left on Monday morning, I left Monday afternoon, and two more are currently in the train, waiting and travelling to Stasiun Pasar Senen. I hope to meet them tomorrow, for doing something else than what I'm doing now, writing stories and waiting for tonight, when I will meet an old friend which lives in Jakarta, somewhere...

Boyce, on Jalan Taman Suropati, Jakarta, on September 19. The performance of the famous jazz group—which often graces the stage of the John F. Kennedy Center, a prestigious cultural showplace in Washington—mesmerized the American diplomats. They were carried away by the beat of the music, tapped their feet, and sipped champagne. Boyce, no mean drummer and guitarist himself, was all smiles as he jammed with the band.
