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.

Repairing the road in between rainstorms The first evening and night in Pangandaran were rain-soaked. Fortunately it had become dry when the early morning had started, although the day started with a completely covered sky so the wet clothes from the night before did not dry quickly. Only when I saw the first neighbors arriving in a truck a little bit of sunshine started to break open the cloud cover.

A short break in Taman Menteng At a normal weekday I took a reasonable early air-conditioned bus to Jakarta. I regularly make this trip because it enables me to travel cheap as well as fast - as fast as traffic allows the bus to go - to downtown Jakarta.
