Drinking coffee in the kampung, part 1 However it wasn't Saturday for sure, but a Tuesday, still I had the feeling that I had to take my motorbike for a nice day of traveling. Where it would bring me? At least as far as Purworejo. To my amazement and some shame I had never been there before, so that became the primary target. I at least had to go there so I could honestly say that I had been there. Furthermore there were no plans, like usual. It was already late in the morning, so it was not really supposed to become a long trip. Maybe after Purworejo it was time to find my way back. That also depended on what I would find along the way of course. Seen the distance and the road conditions it was to take about one and a half hour to get there. My modest estimation.

Indonesian attacks on rebels continue Hundreds of paratroopers jumped into combat while warplanes swooped in to fire rockets at a suspected rebel base in the hills outside the provincial capital. Staged more for TV cameras than for tactical needs, the spectacular attack last Monday launched Indonesia's biggest military operation since it invaded East Timor in 1975. But a week into the campaign against separatist rebels in Aceh province, the fighting already looks a lot like the guerrilla war that people here have endured for 27 years, one marked by few strategic victories and allegations of widespread rights abuses.

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.
