A short break in Taman Menteng At a normal weekday I took a reasonable early air-conditioned bus to Jakarta. I regularly make this trip because it enables me to travel cheap as well as fast - as fast as traffic allows the bus to go - to downtown Jakarta.

The quiet kampung; the daily life It is a very normal Thursday afternoon when I sit down on the veranda. A light rain shower crosses my path here after a long and humid day on which it didn't want to raining the first place. The rain was not enough to clean the humid air and so tomorrow will be another of those warm and slow days. Last year the wet season only lasted until the middle of March, but now there is still rain on a regular base. Not a changing climate, but just a slight change in ocean temperatures. As far as on the other side of the world this impacts tropical areas as well, because weather here isn't that monotonous as it looks like when you see those holiday pictures with a blue sky. For sure there is much sun, but there are clouds as well and rain of course, even during the dry season. Maybe it's just a different type of rain, more light instead of a complete tropical downpour.

Terrorists plan attacks in Indonesia Two of Asia's most wanted terrorists are armed with explosives and planning fresh attacks on Western hotels and banks -- possibly disguising themselves as beggars and receiving shelter from fellow radicals, officials said. Malaysians Azahari bin Husin and Noordin Mohammed Top -- both alleged leaders of the al-Qaeda-linked Southeast Asian terror network Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) and believed to have been key players in last year's Bali bombings that killed 202 people -- are the target of a massive manhunt following their narrow escape from a police dragnet in the West Javanese city of Bandung on Oct. 31.

Going by the headlines and TV images, it's easy to conclude that Indonesia is a hopeless mess. Riots, bombings, assassinations, ethnic violence, a country torn apart by chaos and evil. So when I told friends last month that my wife and I were going to Indonesia for a one-week vacation, most said something along the lines of, "Are you crazy, don't they kill ethnic Chinese there?"
