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.

The Tengger of Bromo: Magic, mystique and modernism Legend has it that the Tengger ethnic group in the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru area of East Java is descended from the ancient Majapahit royal family. The name "Tengger" itself is said to be an acronymic derivation of two legendary figures from the region, Rara Anteng and Jaka Seger. As it has been long told, during a time of chaos for the Majapahit kingdom, Princess Rara Anteng took refuge in the area around Mount Bromo. While she was being evacuated, Rara Anteng met Jaka Seger, the son of a priest from the kingdom of Kediri, which was also in great turmoil. Their meeting was the beginning of a love story, and the area was later christened after their combined names.

Just outside Sengkang we brought a visit to some houses with traditional weaving installations under their house. In this way they are protected from the sunís direct heat and they are working close to home. Itís nice to see the fabrics being produced in front of your nose, too bad itís nothing for me to buy something like it. If you ever want to buy something like it, you can choose from all kinds of natural dyes. If you which they can put real gold in it as well. Everything is for sale, however the people producing it, do wear it themselves as well.

The president director of the State Electricity Company (PLN), Eddie Widiono, seems to be clairvoyant. Two years ago, at a seminar on electricity in Jakarta, he made a prediction that by 2003, Java-Bali would be shrouded in darkness. The reason: scarce electricity supply due to minimum PLN investments. Widiono's estimate might just be optimistic. On September 12, Asep, a resident of Cibinong, Bogor, nearly had a heart attack. A huge explosion shook his house, followed a second later by total darkness. The thundering noise came directly from next door, an electrical relay station handling extremely high voltages. Rushing outside, Asep saw one of the poles inside the station burning. "Wow, the noise was totally deafening, just like a bomb," he said. "Then there were fireworks and a sharp burning smell," he said.

Nothing nurtures confidence after a change in government more than the rapid installation of a cabinet filled with seasoned professionals. That was supposed to happen within a few days of President Megawati Sukarnoputri's inauguration on July 23. It didn't happen. Then she was to finalize the list with freshly chosen vice president Hamzah Haz on July 30. No such luck. Instead, there has been relentless negotiation between officials of the big parties as Megawati was confronted by a reality of Indonesian politics ó cabinet-making as a rush for the spoils.
