A few days ago I was going to Lisa's kos to watch movies. She lives near me, but down this awful road with about 100 speed bumps in between her kos and Jakal. I was really dreading riding down this road and she sensed it so she took me down an alternative route. This road still left something to be desired, but at least there were less speed bumps. It was already dark so we were going slower than normal which was a good thing because at one corner there was a giant hole in the middle of the road! There were two guys there working on the road, barefoot and with picks, but that was it. No "hati-hati ada galian" or anything! We maneuvered our way around it and made it back to her kos to enjoy a relaxing night of movie watching.
Lisa took that route home again about 2 days ago and someone had planted a tree where the hole had been. Now there is a tree in the middle of the road! It was more or less a sign to keep cars from coming through. Crazy Indonesia, I love you!
