Two neighbors but a completely different world It is a completely random day at the end of August. Time to catch a plane to head for a new destination. Fortunately I know what is waiting for me on the other side. This is, for me personally, a lot less stress. I tend to arrange everything into the smallest details, and that from someone that tries to build a life in Indonesia. Yeah, I know, it sounds strange, but until now it was relatively easy for that matter. The bright red AirAsia plane touches down after about two hours of flight. The environment still is tropical and green. It is clouded, that is the only thing I notice directly. That means that here at least I can see what kind of weather it is, because that is a big difference than just two hours ago. Because Jakarta is always covered under a thick layer of brown smog and other lethal stuff.

A lesson from Malaysia One more time I would like to look back to Malaysia a little bit. However I was only there for a week, I still had time to look around more than enough to get back to it for (maybe) one more time. Maybe it's just that I have too much time here, but I think it's rather because I would like Indonesia to have something of it as well. They will have to do most of the work however, I don't have much to tell here of course. I can at least tell about my ideas a little bit on the internet, to get it of my list and probably to never get back to it.

The Tengger of Bromo: Magic, mystique and modernism Legend has it that the Tengger ethnic group in the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru area of East Java is descended from the ancient Majapahit royal family. The name "Tengger" itself is said to be an acronymic derivation of two legendary figures from the region, Rara Anteng and Jaka Seger. As it has been long told, during a time of chaos for the Majapahit kingdom, Princess Rara Anteng took refuge in the area around Mount Bromo. While she was being evacuated, Rara Anteng met Jaka Seger, the son of a priest from the kingdom of Kediri, which was also in great turmoil. Their meeting was the beginning of a love story, and the area was later christened after their combined names.

Power failures causes chaos in Jakarta The big power failure that is currently hitting big parts of Jawa and Bali including the capital Jakarta is causing a chaos in that city. Thousands of cars are stuck in extremely heavy traffic, where normally complete traffic jams are quite normal.

Indonesia prepares for day of the generals DESPITE enduring 32 years of brutal military rule, Indonesia has not lost its respect for gold braid and epaulettes. Two of the three front-runners in the presidential race are former generals, and both served the monolithic New Order regime that finally crumbled in 1998. General Wiranto, chosen this week as the Golkar party's presidential candidate, was Indonesia's armed forces commander until 2000 and responsible for the military brutality in East Timor.

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?"
