Best Western Hotel Sapta Patala closed before it opens You think you can do anything in Indonesia because it's corrupt as hell? Forget about that one here. Indonesia is corrupt indeed, but if you don't pay enough to all those involved, only forget to pay one or if you encounter someone that is not corrupt, your about-to-open hotel ends up in a situation like this:

There is the wet monsoon First some lightning and later with a rolling thunder from the south, a bunch of dark clouds heads towards the north. After two rainshowers yesterday afternoon it is very likely that it will rain again today. A clear sign that the wet monsoon finally will kick of. Somewhat late, but with half a year of virtually no rain at all, every single drop of rain is a gift from God for farmers and people with their own garden. Yesterdays rain was just a reminder of the arrival of the wet monsoon and also cleaned the streets from the dust that had been gathered in all possible and impossible places during the last six months.

Drinking coffee in the kampung, part 1 However it wasn't Saturday for sure, but a Tuesday, still I had the feeling that I had to take my motorbike for a nice day of traveling. Where it would bring me? At least as far as Purworejo. To my amazement and some shame I had never been there before, so that became the primary target. I at least had to go there so I could honestly say that I had been there. Furthermore there were no plans, like usual. It was already late in the morning, so it was not really supposed to become a long trip. Maybe after Purworejo it was time to find my way back. That also depended on what I would find along the way of course. Seen the distance and the road conditions it was to take about one and a half hour to get there. My modest estimation.

Nyepi: Bali prepares for day of silence The mostly Hindu island of Bali was preparing for the Day of Silence today, ushering the Hindu New year. Households were performing rites to purify the soul and cleanse individuals from past sins, while young men were finishing their huge papier-mache effigies of demons that will be used for parades in the streets after dusk to ward off evil. Each village will have their own noisy parade, known as Ogoh-Ogoh, before they are burned before sunrise to symbolize all evil leaving the island just before the new year.

From Jogja, it’s just a short trip by motorbike to Solo, also known as Surakarta. Short is relative, because it takes about as long as a train ride from my current hometown of Eindhoven to Amsterdam, somewhere between 75 and 90 minutes. The road to Solo is quite easy. In fact it’s one long road which starts near the Tugu monument, in downtown Jogja. Travelling to the east the road is named Jl. Jend. Sudirman, Jl. Urip Sumoharjo, Jl. Adisucipto and finally Jl. Solo, starting outside the Jogja outer road, which can bring you to any side of Jogja in a matter of 30 minutes by motorbike.

Indonesia polls favor former general The strains of a hearty tenor filtered out from behind the closed door of hotel room 103. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the front-runner in Indonesia's presidential race, was rehearsing a tune he would sing that morning to voters in this highland town in western Indonesia. "I know you love me, so you will choose me," the thickset former general could be heard crooning in the local Batak dialect, practicing the lyrics he learned minutes earlier, just as he has been practicing for the country's top job for the last several years.

The time has come that I have to look for my own stuff here in Eindhoven. I have been living here for quite some years now, and I know my way around here pretty good (maybe with the help of an internet guide). But only a little while ago I discovered there are more people here who were looking for the same products, Indonesian products that is. After my first holiday to Indonesia, back in 1999, I had the need to shop for ‘the real Indonesian krupuk’ (shrimp-crackers) and I found that in a shop named Toko Murah in the one shopping mall Eindhoven has. I only went there for some krupuk and kue lapis, that was also enough for me.

In the midst of a true anti-teroris atmosphere I was leaving for Jakarta today. Very early in the morning (read in the night) polisi was driving around Bogor with a hurry. The newspapers now reported that they are behind several terrorists in Surabaya, the same is happening with those in Bogor, because the police were in a hurry for a mass-arrest. I don’t know whether they actually found someone, probably they arrested a few for display in “Patrolli”.

Bali tourists desperate to pack up At The Pub, a traditional watering hole for Australians visiting Kuta, a solitary young couple were finishing their drinks and preparing to set off for the airport. Tenille Harris and her boyfriend Shaun Amiss - both from Perth and in their mid-twenties - had been in Kuta for just a day when the bomb exploded at the Sari Club. They had stopped for a quick beer in the nightclub and left shortly before the bomb went off.
