My husband has been living here for over a month, and while I have just joined him this week, we still have two weeks left here. His company put him here but we are so glad they did. The hotel has a wonderful, diverse breakfast- Indonesian, American and British. All the restaurants and meals have been wonderful. A huge mall is just a block down the street. It has everything you could want/need, including tons of restaurants. This place has the most beautiful pool area, it is like a private island. Nice gym and wonderful locker room, jacuzzi, steam room. Oh and an hour massage was only like 20 bucks! Wonderful!

Back home by ...
... Why are you so giant? We are not the right height for Indonesia, hitting your head on a saucepan from the ceiling of a market is a classic example! But actually we didn't have an answer for this one! You have big feet no? Yes I do have big feet (Ant!) and actually I'm regularly told this back in England, so this question wasn't a surprise! Why No sunblock? Here white skin is seen as 'beautiful' and it is near impossible to ...
So when I leave a country, I like to reflect on the lessons it's taught me. Ah indulge me. It's been a long time.
1. You can carry anything on a motorbike, including a goat, all of your chickens, a picnic table, a hundred helium-filled balloons and a bicycle. And if you're Javanese, you can probably carry them all at the same time.
2. Getting over a language barrier is only the first step in being able to communicate. There's a second layer of ...
... if a woman sits on the canon she will become more fertile. Anyhow whilst walking through the square I noticed this canon out of nowhere. The Batavia area is full of wonder and mystery with every corner containing something new to see and marvel at. I took many photos of the canon and walked around reading the plaques about it that are set into the floor.
Off the square we could see the sign for the Café Batavia. We hadn’t quiet finished ...
