Reporting such events - and others that are also causing worldwide news - should be handled with care. However it is not always that easy to select the information and images going with them.

Ramadan in Jalan Jaksa; too much alcohol It was a Saturday yesterday. As usual I got up on time and after breakfast, mandi and a quick look on the internet I grabbed my stuff for a short trip to Jakarta, which is still about one hour from here. The bus at ten in the morning was one bus later than I had planned on taking in the first place, but well, that's how things go. No big deal.

A 'just-in-time' invitation Do you plan things as much as possible if you have the chance? That is what I do. Some of you will tell me that I should not live in Indonesia for that matter, but I think it's quite possible generally spoken. Others know that I have to do my own things and dropping by without informing me first is no problem as well, even if the door is not opened because I am not at home at the time they decide to visit me.
