Only two pilots in simulator, training a success The first reaction from Indonesia on the ban to fly to countries of the European Union for all Indonesian airliners was as clear as it could be.

And all this even when there was not a single Indonesian airliner flying to Europe, since Garuda Indonesia had stopped flying to Amsterdam late 2004 already.

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.

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.

Budi Sadikin, a clean-cut, affable young executive, is smiling broadly. And for good reason. As head of consumer banking in Indonesia for ABN AMRO Bank, the 37-year-old has watched deposits at the Dutch bank's 15 branches triple in value in just three years — to $800 million at the end of 2000. Until 1998, ABN AMRO, which has been doing business in Indonesia for 175 years, did not even have a consumer-banking unit. Now Sadikin oversees a 200-strong team whose job it is to coax more affluent Indonesians to deposit their money in a foreign bank.

It is really to be regretted that finding a solution for the Bank Indonesia case seems to take forever.
