    OK, Jakarta is a huge, unfathomable city, difficult to negotiate with no real central focus and nightmarish traffic. We randomly picked the Bangka via Hostelbookers and turned up late in the evening after a negotiating a dystopian traffic jam from the airport. What a relief to find the B&B was more than we could have hoped for. A beautiful house in a quiet leafy suburb, close to the expat zone but a million miles from the chaos. The staff, Rico and Rini, are incredibly friendly and helpful and the owner, Mr Rama is The Man. Rooms are quiet, cool and comfortable, the place has good wifi and places to relax and the complimentary breakfast is well laid out every morning. Highlight of our four day stay was the personal guided tour by Rama. He knows and loves his city, speaks perfect English and took us around the place in an air-coned car with a good driver. We went everywhere, the best bit being the old docks where we went on board a big wooden trading schooner that was loading stuff for Sulwesi, quite the experience. We left Jakarta with a new. improved opinion of the place and at least three new friends. Hope to return one day. Top place.

    ... the option for us. We went to the station and took our ticket number to wait to be served. Number 614. The counter was still around the 100 mark and after some quick maths we realised it could take over 4 hours to get served. Joe stayed at the station practising not blinking in staring contests with locals whilst Rob went back to the museum to learn some more. After 3 hours of waiting ...

    A morning run where I am meeting more of the locals and becoming familiar with some. After the run I went to the local market and then for a walk looking at the houses with my hosts. If you want fresh chicken, the market is the place. The chicken goes from pecking on the ground to defeathered in a plastic bag, all cut up and ready ...

Trapse round getting some standard holiday photoing, and walk outside to flag down a taxi. We have one before we reach the pavement and we ask him to take us to Starbucks. After many opportunities we havent done a Starbucks in indonesia yet and this is probably our last opportunity Pass ...
