I've arrived in Jakarta. It's just started raining in style, with a couple of impressive thunderclaps. On the taxi ride over from the airport, I learned that they drive on the left here but also pass on the left, that you can often fit 3 cars into 2 marked lanes on a nice wide modern toll road, and that the car horn is a vital piece of road safety equipment.
Now time to recover that night's sleep that the time difference and travel stole. It's now nearly 24 hours since I woke up in Cambridge. I'm very glad it's Islamic New Year, so the office is closed.
