... we waited a long time for a bus taking us to Gambir station - nearby to our hotel for the night. Since we are only here literally for a few hours, leaving early tomorrow morning, we decided that finding a hotel in a more accessible place made the most sense. Jakarta is very much as described and pre-warned, slightly run-down with crazy roads: Manila meets Hanoi though less severe in both cases. At the train station we looked ...

My Bahasa is getting better, though! I can't have a conversation with someone, but it's workable enough that Kyle and I can get by. Knowing how to ask for something, to be able to bargain and buy things, and direct ...
