... the Mercedes. So far, so good!
While in Singapore all the alums warned me that the traffic in Jakarta would be unlike any I had experienced before.

We visited the Plaza Shopping Centre which was very fancy, although we were horrified to find a shop called Stradivarius which sold kids jeans rather than ornate musical instruments. We left and bought a travel adaptor from a street vendor for 10,000 because we did not bring our European adapters but most of Indonesia was once Dutch! We also got dinner at an outdoor stall come restaurant where a man chatted ...
