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.

I only managed to find a small selection of fruit, so figured "when in Rome" and tested out some of the other stuff too - it wasn't bad but chicken at 9am is just wrong. AND how Lipton is still in business I don't know - that dish water is not tea! I am SO glad I bought a stash of Yorkshire teabags ...
... the aim was to get to a paradise island on the remotest tip of west java that had coral so I could go snorkeling. We either got a boat from Surmur or trekked from Tamanjaya. Semur was on route to Tamanjaya so we would stop and ask there about boats and head on if not. As we
boarded our bus one of the pricks from earlier got the driver out and started to talk to him. He then started on us "the driver wants to know why you are going to Semur" "where are ...
... 3 other girls but one is on holiday this weekend so there's a spare bedroom just in time for our arrival Friday night we had food from the warung opposite the house, I went for fried noodles which cost me just 50 pence. Me, Anna, Ezta and her house mate Ayu then got ready and went for drinks to some bars nearby, which was really nice. We didn't have a late night as we were so tired from traveling and really just needed ...

... that make noise when shook. The different sized wooden cylinders comprising one instrument symbolize the importance of family. Smaller Angklung make higher sounds than larger Angklung and the sound each Angklung makes is moderated by how fast it is shook. Vic and I were surprised to come across a class of Angklung players playing a concert in the back of one of the ...
