This means that an entire Indonesian family stuffed in one oversized SUV still pays almost nothing to use the toll roads.

The easy life in the kampung The long trip by bus lay behind us when we arrived at what we called home at half past three in the night. Most of the family stayed awake to greet us, so not to be rude I sat down on the wooden bench to eat something. After that it was soon time to excuse me to catch some sleep. I just wanted to go along with the rest here, so getting up early is something obligatory.

A peek into Jakarta's nightlife, the women of B.A.T.S. The later it gets the more clear it becomes that it is not all about the music, the band and the alcohol here.

The luxury of a swimming pool in your hotel After the trip by train and a nice glass of teh hangat (see "Lodaya Malam to Bandung, trains run on time") it was time to continue our trip. We didn't reach our goal for the day, however it wasn't that far anymore. We had to end up at the Jayakarta hotel which was located in the northern part of Bandung. We realized that a free nights' stay in the hotel would not come totally free of course. I can admit - without any feeling of shame - that I don't want to spend my money on that kind of hotels.

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.
