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.

As soon as Tana Toraja was introduced to me, it was taken away as well. I still remember the fact that I agreed on those meagre four days in Tana Toraja ‘because my schedule is too tight’, as it always is. In the van, just leaving the hotel for the last time, I was asking myself when I would really stop taking about schedules at all. Probably never, because I will always have to take an airplane in and out Indonesia again, but the time between those fixed points is merely a collection of things to do and things done in the past. For now, I was on my way to Makassar again, this very same evening I would have dinner with the owner of Caraka Travelindo, which has provided me with this wonderful trip.
