OK So we are actually in Yogyakarta now, but let me back track and start from the beginning. We arrived in Jakarta on Thursday, very hot, where we met with friends, old and new, and promptly left Friday night for Semarang, by freezing train, to join in on a family party, eat fresh Durian and wonder at the plethera of empty dutch buildings covering the old part of town. Semarang is even hotter than Jakarta, and we left there Sunday for Yogya, where we are now, still a bit in shock as we unpacked our stored boxes and marveled at the things still same and the things so different from a year a half ago. Today, Monday, we borrowed a motorcycle to visit some of our favorite haunts. As old memories surprise us the rest of the world melts away and we are floating along in Yogya again, under those incredible clouds, zooming in and out of traffic, grabbing for my helmet as the wind tries to take it from my head.
