The Big Smoke
Trip Start Feb 07, 2004

We took a cab out to Kota, the old part of the city, which we agreed is a shithole, so we spent time wandering through the nice clean, modern air-conditioned shopping plazas, watched some movies, went to the top of the National Monument (known here as Soeharto's Last Erection) and even to a museum for a few hours
One highlight was strutting my dirty shorts, thongs and singlet in real style at the very suave & expensive f bar (fashion tv bar!). Unfortunately my current travel commitments prevented me from accepting their very lucrative modeling contract... so it was off to the Irish Pub for a Kilkenny, the first since leaving Aus.
It's been a full month in Indo, and we've traveled quite quickly (with the exception of being laid up sick in Bali), but there's still plenty more to explore; Sumatra, Silawasi, Kallimantan, Papua....
One day, but not today.
