Buy an Indonesian island! Besides counting islands, Indonesia has more on it's hands. Just recently it became known that the website www.privateislandsonline.com is selling several Indonesian islands. Some of you will directly say that foreigners can not own any land in Indonesia, which is correct, and is also stated on the website. There is no freehold, only leasehold. So in fact you are not buying an island, you are leasing it.

Back to Jakarta indeed, but the Batavia Air plane has not arrived yet so the minutes of delay start to count already. In contrary to the airport of Jakarta, there are no boards with information about the recently introduced laws on the protection of passengers in case of delay.

Indonesia Bisa! They stole my motorbike already It was just my second night in my new neighborhood of Lippo Cikarang when I woke up and found out that something was wrong. As I was preparing to go to Jakarta by bus - a one hour drive to Komdak bus shelter - I wanted to get my motorbike from the parking space which is fenced off with an iron fence. I wanted to get the key first, but no key at the place where it should be. And then; no motorbike there. Oops, what had gone wrong and where is the thing?

No more parking mafia! You know them, the ever friendly people who always know where to find that parking space you need. If not on the pavement, in front of an entrance or on a dead-end part of the highway system in Jakarta. There is always place for just one more car, motorbike or bikes, which are folded together near a trash can or tree. No problem at all and we are all happy that we can park at a distance less than ten meters from where we want to go. Nothing wrong with paying a little extra on top of the set prices. Gladly even, because 'better be lazy than tired', is something you have to pay for. Of course we are not talking huge amounts here and for hat few thousand Rupiah's you won't push aside cars yourself, I won't believe that.

What if I was a terrorist Just over one week ago it all happened. At walking distance one person was killed, some were arrested and after that the party was over as quick as it started. It wasn't a criminal shootout and n drugs were found as well. It was nothing more than busting some terrorism-suspects by an anti-terror squad from the Indonesian police (Densus 88); they were simply overwhelmed in their hide-out. The one that tried to flea, was directly given some bullets and didn't survive the event. Seven others were arrested. In fact that could be the entire story, but it was just not to happen that way. It proved to be the start of what currently looks like a terror cell uncovered. Within two weeks after the first shooting several more police actions were held. Police is scarce with giving information, but in recent days is became clear that most likely a part of the Southeast Asian terror network Jemaah Islamiyah has been found.

The first plane It was less than one week before it really happened. I was in Kuala Lumpur to settle some official stuff, and when drinking an iced tea I took some time off in the evening to visit a friend. It was getting late and however we usually only 'speak' to each other on the internet, we had some serious issues as well. Sometimes it's best to make a small joke about accidents and disasters. The people on board of the missing Adam Air plane are having a splendid time diving there, things like that, whether they are fun or not. As long as it doesn't happen in your own direct environment, you can still say things like that. I also told that I always missed such events; earthquakes when I'm away; other disasters beyond my easy reach and other things like that.

An hour into what should have been a short hop between islands, the pilot reported heavy winds. Then the plane vanished, sparking a massive search. Thousands of soldiers battled rugged jungle terrain, a fleet of aircraft took to the skies and ships scoured the sea for a third day Thursday, spanning a 28,000-square-mile area - roughly the size of Ireland, or the U.S. state of California. But by nightfall they had found no trace of the Boeing 737.

Probably because hotels are a need and not a desired place of stay during their holiday. Why stay in a hotel when you have all the luxury at home? That is holiday of course.
