Indonesian Quest

"Indonesia Most Liveable" has generated some very interesting comments and
Jakartass has added his considerable influence to assist in the Greenstump quest. Thanks J.

I am hoping for some comments/advice on various regions from the Indonesian Perspective. I did get one comment from the resident blogshpere "expat pretending to be Indonesian" but included it for low class humour value only and it certianly doesn't count as an Indonesian Perspective Comment.

Based on the information so far, some future locations are already penciled in for a visit in the very near future. Bitangs on the beach, relaxing in the rainforest sounds so nice but in the meantime

"I am sitting in my dingy little office,
where a stingy ray of sunlight struggles feebly down between the houses tall,
And the foetid air and gritty of the dusty, dirty city
Through the open window floating, spreads its foulness over all.

And in place of lowing cattle, I can hear the fiendish rattle
Of the tramways and the buses making hurry down the street,
And the language uninviting of the gutter children fighting,
Comes fitfully and faintly through the ceaseless tramp of feet.

And the hurrying people daunt me,
and their pallid faces haunt me
As they shoulder one another in their rush and nervous haste,
With their eager eyes and greedy,
and their stunted forms and weedy,
For townsfolk have no time to grow, they have no time to waste

With a few more suggestions, perhaps we could develop an intineray purely based on Indonesian bloggers recommendations. A bloggers intinerary?? ...Mmm what would we call it "The Blogger's Run"...naagh... sounds a little to Hash House Harriers to me and might scare off the more "relaxed" bloggers out there. Suggestions anyone?

If this keeps going perhaps a new blog, with pictures and comments from our bloggers on each place..the mind boggles or is that bloggles.
