Subagio said the regional military command also had dispatched a team of medical personnel and sent kitchen utensils, communication instrument and transport vehicles to the quake-hit areas.

He said Indonesian military (TNI) soldiers, along with police officers and local residents had also evacuated survivors and cured those sustaining injuries in the quake.

They also got involved in the effort to remove debris of collapsed buildings using heavy-duty equipment owned by private companies and the district governments, he said."We will also send heavy-duty equipment and medical team from the provincial capital Banda Aceh to the affected areas if needed," he said.

To Yogyakarta with a little detour With two tickets Batam-Jakarta-Yogyakarta we made an effort to get to our final destination of the day quite early in the morning today. When I checked the news enjoying a fresh cup of coffee I found out that the airport of Yogyakarta was still closed and that this was likely to stay this way for some time to come. So no direct flight to Yogyakarta today.

A few hours in Jalan Jaksa I have been there before and I have written about it before. It is still a nice and not unimportant easy-to-reach destination for a quick lunch and a Large Bintang before you start the second half of the day. Just relaxing for a couple of hours, coming to terms after the first part of the day.

It is really quiet in the rice fields If you have already made the trip to the rice fields you will notice that it is extremely quiet here when you take a break yourself. Some people are most likely working somewhere nearby, but they are only producing sounds that are not overstemming more natural sounds, as long as they don't use a chainsaw to cut down an old coconut-tree that is.

To the gunung The word gunung means mountain, but that doesn't always mean that this mountain really is a mountain. A stretch of land that runs upward also is named a mountain. After this was clear, we - my girlfriend, her dad, a niece and me - went 'up the mountain' to bring a visit to the recently purchased rice fields where a gubug ('resting house') has been built as well by now.

A night of rain and thunder It is after six o'clock in the morning when I decide to get up. Outside it is still raining, weather that started the afternoon before with heavy thunder and some rain as well. During the night, this weather came and went continuously, but for the daily life here that doesn't matter at all, remarkably enough.
