Odds & Ends


VERY unusual to see dogs being walked here – for two reasons: (1) Jakarta is not very walker-friendly (the area around the office is sort of an exception, barely) and (2) dogs are considered haram (unclean) by Muslims.  Since 85+% of Indonesia is Muslim, dogs are not very popular.

Not very appetizing-sounding cookies ($4)


Very cool looking building front covered in wood blocks


This guy was running down the middle of the street pushing a portable air pump, cars buzzing around him… 


An Angkot driving by with a guy hanging out of it playing his guitar.   I know what it looks like but he’s not – he’s just holding the pick in in his right hand and trying to wave at the same time….


A really beat up Angkot


I was telling Ivan about how the young kids love to have their photo taken with us, and he said ‘really’?  So I said, ‘watch’…and walked over to a group and said ‘ok foto, foto’ and sure enough….they did not fail to prove me right!  So fun….

    Probably another reason there are not many dogs around is that non-muslims have them for dinner. The photo of the load of ice made me wonder if it was a new air conditioning system. BTW how are your ribs doing?
