I gotta get out of this place…
Welcome to the arse-end of the Indo universe, a toxic hole of chemical industry and human misery. Cancer is everywhere and nobody likes you.
Ports in Indonesia are evil traps. Once you enter – its impossible to leave. Days become weeks… brutal corruption at every turn. Everyone’s into you for something, it’s a losing game and you never seem to be able to buy any fuel – not without a lot of negotiating. There’s oil everywhere and you can’t score a drop.
These are the hard places… the towns not on the brochure.
The ‘real’ Indo.
But nothing’s really that bad. You know it’s worth every stale waft of beetle nut… because once you blow off the trivial bullshit – it’s all gold.
Outside… far from the muddy waters… those virginal islands… with them beautiful waves.
Paradise must be earned.. and its worth every tear.
