Flight day dua (two)

16 August, 2009

Finally, we arrived in Jakarta. It was 33 degrees C (90 degrees F) at 3:00 p.m., so not too bad. (It was 33 at midnight in Dubai when we arrived, so Jakarta was much better!). We arrived 30 minutes early (again!). I hope the flights home are the same. Since we already had our visas, we got to skip the long “Visa upon arrival” line, and head straight through customs.  We then caught an evening flight to Yogyakarta and arrived at our hotel by taxi by about 10 p.m. 

Our hotel is very lovely, filled mostly with Dutch and German tourists.  We even get tea and cake every evening at 5:00!  Although the rooms are very bare, we do have a western bathroom and our own shower.  I already have a feeling that by the end of this trip, I will be desperately longing for a nice Dutch toilet.  You know, one that is not a squat toilet on the ground, maybe has a nice toilet paper dispenser, and perhaps even toilet paper…
