Later this afternoon, at 16:20 local time, my flight should depart. When I got out of the taxi about half an hour ago I first bought a cup of iced tea at A&W. Not the best choice in the area, but I needed over an hour to reach the airport and had already spend an hour in the bus. Two hours without drinking is far from good for me.

Wet feet in North Jakarta, 1 Traveling by minibus we arrived in Jakarta from Bandung with a large detour via Soekarno-Hatta International Airport we were dropped at our destination, a boarding house in Pluit, a neighborhood in the far north of Jakarta. A friend of us also stayed in the boarding house, so it seemed like a nice idea to spend several nights there, also because there was a nice shower and air-conditioning of course. Without both it would be a pretty sweaty adventure in the always sticky city of Jakarta. In this case preventing is better than having to look for a cure later on, so we preferred a room in the boarding house. After we dropped our bags we ate something, because lunch time had already passed. After lunch we had a quick look around to see where we had ended up after all.

Two neighbors but a completely different world It is a completely random day at the end of August. Time to catch a plane to head for a new destination. Fortunately I know what is waiting for me on the other side. This is, for me personally, a lot less stress. I tend to arrange everything into the smallest details, and that from someone that tries to build a life in Indonesia. Yeah, I know, it sounds strange, but until now it was relatively easy for that matter. The bright red AirAsia plane touches down after about two hours of flight. The environment still is tropical and green. It is clouded, that is the only thing I notice directly. That means that here at least I can see what kind of weather it is, because that is a big difference than just two hours ago. Because Jakarta is always covered under a thick layer of brown smog and other lethal stuff.

To Kuala Lumpur shortly It was about time for me to get a new visa. Because of regulations it's not possible to extend a certain kind of visa - tourist visa. Also you can't apply for a new visa when in Indonesia as well. You will have to go to an Indonesian embassy. Where that embassy is doesn't really matter, so there are a lot of options left to look around for a holiday-hobbyist. And so I got to plan my first 'visa trip' to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Someone I know from the internet lives around there as well, so I also created the opportunity to meet. That should not be a problem because I would stay there for one entire week. I wasn't in a hurry - I didn't have to go back to Indonesia the same day or so - so I could look around there while my passport would be updated with a new sticker which permits entry into Indonesia again.

In a series of short stories I will shine a light on things I have seen, I have done, I have smelled and touched in my three weeks stay in Indonesia (Jogjakarta and Sulawesi) in March 2004. Many things tend to fade away as soon as you are back home, picking up your daily life. Luckily I had a little booklet for some daily remarks. That will be my guide for this stories and stories to come.
