How To become a Millionaire and a Beggar in one Day
That’s actually very simple. Just go to Jakarta !
The coming time i will be telling you about a trip we ( my wife Riitta and i ) made trough Indonesia, from Jakarta trough Java and ending in Bali. After arrival to Soekarno-Hatta Airport we had to get to an ATM in order to get some cash. Within a minute we found ourselves with a pack of notes in our hands. 2.500.000 !! That’s Rupiah’s.
The richdom was shortlived.
After having wandered some parts of the bustling metropole called Jakarta, and later in the evening while writing this, i noticed the faint smell of garbage, of which I myself was apparently the source. Picked up in the streets, where this smell seems to be part of being a Jakartian, or what ever they call themselves.
Tomorrow more about Jakarta.
