You have just paid in the local supermarket and your change is a pile of banknotes that are just a few euro cents in value. If you are lucky enough, they will add a handful of aluminum coins with even less value than those uang kertas ('paper money') as well.

Traveling between Yogyakarta and Malang It's not really difficult go get up on time, around seven in the morning, so for that matter it's a nice service that it's possible to get a minivan in front of the door within the hour when I'm making a trip to a destination at a bigger distance than just in the city or nearby. That kind of minivan is called a travel here, and plies a fixed route a few times a day, for example from Yogyakarta via Solo, Madiun and Malang to Surabaya. Of course you can also travel the other way around, if you like you can go as far as Jakarta, but from Yogyakarta that is such a big distance that I rather prefer taking the train or a plane. Trains often depart or arrive at the most strange times possible, but that's a matter of looking what you personally most like.

Indonesia becomes frontline in World Bank battle against corruption Paul Wolfowitz, a key architect of America's invasion of Iraq and its ambitions to reshape the world, was President George Bush's controversial choice to take the reins of the World Bank last year. Mr Wolfowitz, despised by many for his policies but admired for his intellect, ignored the furore over his appointment, waiting 12 months to make his first major policy pronouncement. Its location, Indonesia, and his warning of rampant corruption undermining global aid and development efforts, was almost as ambitious and controversial as his attempts to re-engineer the Middle East.

Indonesia pushes for geothermal renewal ndonesia, land of earthquakes and volcanos, is literally sitting on top of the solution for its energy needs: Vast reservoirs of hot water deep beneath the earth's crust can be harnessed to generate electricity. What's more, it's a clean, renewable energy source. Yet the country continues to import millions of barrels of oil and fuel annually. Legal uncertainties, financial risks and government bureaucracy have repelled international investors from developing its geothermal resources.

The president director of the State Electricity Company (PLN), Eddie Widiono, seems to be clairvoyant. Two years ago, at a seminar on electricity in Jakarta, he made a prediction that by 2003, Java-Bali would be shrouded in darkness. The reason: scarce electricity supply due to minimum PLN investments. Widiono's estimate might just be optimistic. On September 12, Asep, a resident of Cibinong, Bogor, nearly had a heart attack. A huge explosion shook his house, followed a second later by total darkness. The thundering noise came directly from next door, an electrical relay station handling extremely high voltages. Rushing outside, Asep saw one of the poles inside the station burning. "Wow, the noise was totally deafening, just like a bomb," he said. "Then there were fireworks and a sharp burning smell," he said.

Tension mounts in Indonesia In recent weeks thousands of Wahid's supporters particularly in his home province of East Java have formed paramilitary squads. They have announced plans to come to the capital before the parliament votes on Wahid's fate at the end of this month. A difficult time awaits him. But what worries international observers is the prospects of instability and violence in the country. Indonesian president Abdurrahman Wahid, currently embroiled in a crisis to remain in the office, has warned that a "nationwide rebellion" would erupt if the parliament attempts to impeach him on corruption charges. He said more than 400,000 people from across the main island of Java and southern end of Sumatra were ready to come into the capital to protest against moves to oust him from presidency.
