Coming back from Indonesia my mind and senses are full of rich memories. The humming sounds of countless motorbikes in Jakarta, the taste of fried rice with egg, that accompanied us from breakfast to dinner. ‘What do you want for breakfast?’ became a running gag because there was only one possible answer: Nasi Goreng.
When driving through Semarang by night I felt like I’m in Abbas Kiarostami’s movie ‘Like someone in Love’. The architecture of the Old City visualised the clash of cultures in Indonesia, combining typical Dutch style (Indonesia was colonial territory of the Netherlands until 1945) with Asian influences.
