A big pile of junk ... coming soon to your town!

So we're off to the US tomorrow to catch up with family and friends. With less than 24 hours to go, the apartment is a mess, I've only just started to pack, and I've somehow acquired a mountain of trivialities to distribute around New England: Chiki Balls, Seaweed Cheetos, Kopi Susu candy, silly video clips, and notebooks with strange sayings on the front ("You and a friend are pleased at measure. Can you make a good friend with me?")

Of course, I do think nothing says "I've really missed you for the last year and a half" like a Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Beng-Beng. But if you're expecting to see me within the next 30 days or so, consider yourself warned. As for the blog, I probably won't be writing much for a bit. See you later!

As it happens, I was listening to the rerun of the Exchange as I was coming back from Berlin. I was dying to ask you to compare Berlin and Jakarta and why you seem to gravitate towards underdog cities. I spent a glorious weekend in your old house there with Rachael and Kate and think of you now everytime I run by it -- which is about once or twice a week. It was SO great to hear your voice on the radio again and even better to hear your insights into Indonesia. Thank you.

thank you so much for writing about Indonesia.
Only Jakarta? not include Bogor, Bandung, Cirebon?

So you were in New England? Are you from there originally. I live in Boston.

Whoa ... so many comments!

Wayan and Richard: thanks for calling the show! You can expect to see me by the end of January; mind if I stay with you for a month? Heh - just kidding. Maybe.

Katie: Berlin vs. Jakarta - that's a great question. In fact I think I'll blog about it. As for underdogs, I've been a Red Sox fan all my life thanks to my Boston Irish mom; I think it's shaped my whole outlook. I drove by my old house and it looks fantastic. I always loved that place. It's great to see it get the care it deserves!

Mas Kopdang: Thanks! I write about Jakarta whenever I get away. I'm hoping to do so even more this year. Check back!

Rhea: I grew up in Virginia but escaped to New England as soon as I could. I love your blog. I think my blog aspires to be the AmerIndonesian version of your blog.
