Chickens rule the world Earlier this month it finally came through - Jakarta was to forbid all chickens in, on, around, below and besides houses, huts and other structures - but since then not much happened elsewhere to reach the same effect. Of course that will not be easy. Not outside Jakarta but also not within the city limits of a city of 15 million souls. Whether the city is flooded or not, chickens will always be there. Just recently a small group of people started to understand that chickens and humans can be a dangerous combination. This are probably people which already lost someone dear to this disease with incredibly high mortality rates. For all the others they can't care less, they have to make some living from it. Without chickens no food and that is what the local government realizes.

The gray ooze that ate the villages Nothing, it seems, can stop the mud. For more than three months, the hot, noxious goop has spewed up through a crack in the earth at a natural-gas exploration site, swamping everything in its path. The expanding, surreal gray lake with the stench of rotten eggs has enveloped more than 10 square miles of land in eastern Java, Indonesia's most densely populated island. The flow has forced 8,000 to 10,000 people from their homes, engulfed about a dozen factories, contaminated fish farms and intermittently closed a major highway.

A police experience in Bali and Yogyakarta A different world of course, since Bali is located about 500 kilometers east of Yogyakarta. It's another island, another culture and whatever more, but one thing I encountered amazed me the most, but in fact I only realised it when I was home again, bringing back memories with some friends and beers. This is about the difference in approach, if you can call it that, of the local police concerning 'traffic violations'. For a start I would like to admit that I do actually make mistakes. Probably nothing close to a miracle.
