Drinking coffee in the kampung, part 2 First time to have a drink. I looked in the direction of the only warung that I could find here at the moment. I didn't really want to look for another one. Fortunately there was someone to serve, in the form of a Javanese women which sat on a bench in front of the house. Probably waiting for a customer. A bemo passed. That stopped and the driver got out. Hopefully he didn't bring any passengers, otherwise they had to wait. I wasn't the only one there when I walked into that direction. The driver ordered an iced tea and sat down. I just had picked up the nice idea to drink a coffee here. It had been a long time that I drunk a kopi tubruk actually. That is nice for a change. I found a nice spot at the one big table available.

Biking on Saturday afternoon It was a Saturday afternoon as any other, but sometimes I just feel the need to get out for a while. This is not always possible, but when there is a possibility and there are no other appointments in the agenda, then it just might happen that after lunch I decide to grab my stuff for a trip on the motorbike. It's not too far away, within the borders of the province of Yogyakarta, but at least I can get away from the daily life for a while. Helmet, keys and a wallet is enough. To store some of the memories I have I also bring a camera with me and within a matter of minutes I leave the area. Where do I go then? Ooh, I felt like having a drink in Wonosari, so that became my first destination, knowing that most likely it would be something in that direction, but that doesn't really matter.

Indonesia becomes frontline in World Bank battle against corruption Paul Wolfowitz, a key architect of America's invasion of Iraq and its ambitions to reshape the world, was President George Bush's controversial choice to take the reins of the World Bank last year. Mr Wolfowitz, despised by many for his policies but admired for his intellect, ignored the furore over his appointment, waiting 12 months to make his first major policy pronouncement. Its location, Indonesia, and his warning of rampant corruption undermining global aid and development efforts, was almost as ambitious and controversial as his attempts to re-engineer the Middle East.

Fuelling reforms in Indonesia It is the single most unpopular decision any Indonesian president could make, with the potential to trigger immediate political unrest. But the move by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to cut costly fuel subsidies and so push fuel prices up by 30 per cent in a poor nation is also the single most important decision for the recovery of the ailing Indonesian economy. And with half the Indonesian population scraping by on less than $2.50 a day, economic growth - and spending on basic services such as health, education and infrastructure - is the key to social and political stability on Australia's northern doorstep. The former president, Megawati Soekarnoputri, long understood this link, but lacked the political courage to take on the protesters. Yesterday, however, fuel prices did finally rise, despite the unhappy mobs and panic buying at the petrol bowsers.

In fact it was two days of doing nothing. Well, doing nothing is nothing for me, so that’s not exactly what I did. I was driving around on my motorbike with Cabe, and that’s something which is a little bit more than doing nothing. Not too early in the morning we left for a drive around the city again. First we would have a look at Gunung Merapi again, since that can be viewed in the morning, because fog tends to spoil the view somewhere in the afternoon. When we arrived at around eleven o’clock, there was nothing to see anymore. The clouds had already taken over the view over Gunung Merapi. We decided not to continue the trip, and to head back for Jogja for lunch and something else, no plans made yet.

Blood. countless gallons of blood soaked deep into the clay of a soccer field. There have been two heavy thunderstorms in the four days since 118 children, women and men—Madurese refugees huddled together and promised safe passage—were systematically butchered on the high-school playing field in Parenggean, a logging town deep in central Kalimantan. Those rains weren't cleansing enough: in the still of a tropical afternoon, the sweet stink of putrescence hangs in the air like the unquiet spirits of those murdered here. Halerin, a stocky sawmill hand in his thirties, was at the field that night. His account:

Tense times for the rupiah and the economy amid Bank Indonesia's crisis at the top. Syahril Sabirin is back at work after six months away, and there's something of a celebration on. Jacket tossed over his shoulder, Indonesia's mild-mannered banking chief wades through a crowd of central bank employees welcoming him back like some dear uncle. The odd thing is, he's just spent half a year under house arrest, on charges of corruption. But Sabirin is among supporters now. He speaks of the need to rebuild staff morale and clear his name. The government still aims to bring Sabirin to court over a scandal involving $80 million in commissions paid by Bank Bali to a firm linked to Golkar, the former ruling party. Allegedly in exchange for the money, funds were released to Bank Bali with central bank approval. "It's a soap opera," sniffs a senior state official, shocked by Sabirin's return. "A farce," adds another. - It would all be funny — if it weren't for real. In fact, Bank Indonesia has joined the hated military, the bungling police and a government adrift in the gallery of faltering national entities. "This is just one more example of the institutional vacuum," says Robert Broadfoot, managing director of the Hong Kong-based Political and Economic Risk Consultancy. Sabirin's woes are not the central bank's only problem by a longshot. Recently, all but two central bank governors resigned after the Supreme Audit Agency reported that during the financial crisis, nearly $9 billion in emergency loans to private-sector banks, many controlled by Suharto cronies, were diverted to unauthorized spending and lending (see table opposite). Little of the money is likely to ever be recovered. Can Indonesia's currency and economy survive the foibles at the central bank? So far, the rupiah isn't collapsing, though it's down 25% from its 2000 high.
