Jakarta's slums struggle with sanitation In Jakarta's northern Muara Angke coastal area, a lack of access to piped water has forced people to bathe and wash clothes using murky grey water from fish ponds. "I don't feel disgusted at all. Iíve gotten used to it," Ibu Nunung, who shells mussels for a living, told IRIN outside her house in Muara Angke Blok Empang, a slum in the area.

Full buses in Jakarta Outside the use of the many thousands of - in general - old buses that are still in use today, there is a new option which was introduced just a few years ago. In 2004 these were brand new buses which were used on - then - just two routes. One route ran from north to south and back and the other one from west to east and back. The official name TransJakarta can be found on the buses, but for the rest the company is known as 'Busway'. And that is exactly what it is, because TransJakarta is too common. In the four year that this company exists hundreds of bus stops were constructed from durable materials and four more routes were organized as well. They seem to run all across the city without any logic though.

Sidoarjo mud flow may collapse in coming years Indonesia's disastrous mud volcano is collapsing on itself, according to new research released on the second anniversary of the ever-growing environmental catastrophe. Every day, 100,000 cubic metres of hot, stinking sludge continues to ooze from the mud volcano, which burst through the earth two years ago during deep drilling at a nearby exploratory well, linked to Indonesia's richest man and also part-owned by Australian company Santos.

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 handful of tickets, 6 Quite a lot back in time, about two-and-a-half to three years already, but when I found these bills again there were certain memories returning to my mind. It's time once more to write down some of them here on this virtual paper, so I can reduce my current heap of entrance- and parking tickets and other useless prove of payment. I always keep all of them, just in case. But there is never a just in case until I find them again, like today.

The nowhere people Fitriyah was 14 when her mother left their Java village to work as a maid in Saudi Arabia. There were two letters from Sulastri after she arrived in Riyadh, and then a silence for seven years: no calls, no letters, and no money. When Fitriyah saw her mother again, she was dead. The autopsy stated that Sulastri had died from insect bites. But there was no explanation for the bruises covering the body when it was returned. "For seven years, I had no idea what had happened and why she didn't write. Now, at least, I can understand her silence," she whispers.

Indonesia gas sale fails amid Java mudflow row Indonesian energy and mining firm PT Energi on Tuesday lost a potential buyer of some gas assets as controversy over devastating mud flows from near a drilling site in East Java continued to rage. PT Energi Mega Persada Tbk wants to sell stakes in firms that control gas block operator Lapindo Brantas -- a company that has been blamed for causing mud to gush from near a drilling site for months.

Indonesia turns to greener motorised rickshaws For years, their acrid fumes have been as much a part of the Indonesian capital as the distinctive smell of the country's clove cigarettes. Now the Jakarta city government hopes the old smoke-belching motorised rickshaws or bajajs, which Indonesians pronounce as "budge eye", may finally be able to rattle off into the sunset.

Mount Merapi volcano explodes with gas, ash Indonesia's Mount Merapi volcano exploded with clouds of hot gas and ash rain early on Monday, sending some villagers who had been reluctant to leave scurrying for safety. Grey ash covered some vegetation and rooftops in the area of Ketep, 10 kms (six miles) from the base of the mountain, and many houses appeared deserted after residents evacuated.

Living on a fault line A year after the tsunami, scientists fear that another monster earthquake might one day strike Sumatra, triggering a fresh inundation by the sea. How frightened should we be?

Eight other vulcanoes with higher activity Around 25,000 people fled their homes in western Sumatra yesterday after a series of volcanic eruptions from Mount Talang. Eight other large volcanoes in Indonesia are also showing significant increases in activity, raising alarm in the earthquake-prone region. The most active has been Mt Talang, 40 miles east of Padang, the largest city on Sumatra's west coast, sending thick, grey ash and smoke half a mile into the air on Tuesday.

"Oh, you have to visit Lombok, it's very different from other islands in Indonesia, and Bali. It's much more quiet and the people are more friendly." That was what I was told when I told people there was a small chance I would go to Lombok. A very definate 'must see' island.

Indonesia uses UK Hawks in Aceh offensive Indonesia launched its much-anticipated military offensive against separatists in Aceh province yesterday with displays of "shock therapy" on land, at sea and in the air. It was intended as a demonstration of what the rebels can expect from Jakarta's latest operation to crush the 27-year insurgency.

Unlike the Suharto era, Indonesia now has quite radical Islamic groups operating in the open. Among them, the Islamic Defenders Front (Front Pembela Islam, FPI) is infamous for unleashing paramilitary gangs on 'iniquitous' nightspots. The Sunni Communication Forum (Forum Komunikasi Ahlusunnah Wal Jamaah, FKAWJ) fights for Muslims in Maluku. The Liberation Party (Hizbut Tahrir) is a branch of the Middle Eastern movement of the same name. It calls for the Indonesian nation-state to be abolished and replaced by the classic model of an Islamic state, the caliphate. Both FKAWJ and Hizbut Tahrir bluntly reject democratic models as a Western invention, incompatible with Islam. The campus-based Hizbut Tahrir shows restraint in its actions, but the other two frequently operate in a grey area of the law (see accompanying article).
