It has been a mixed day. My travel went well with a modern plane and new airport terminal at Pontianak. Big change since I was last here. I enjoyed my first of many bowls of noodles and joined up with some of Benny's local friends. We got our motorcycles organised and set out to find Buddy Hartano, my old friend.
We had heard he was in Pontianak and dodged around the town trying to find him. Sadly he avoided us and I couldn't get to see him. We saw his relatives and friends and left a few messages for him.
I had forgotten what 32 degrees at 8pm feels like and how sweaty a helmet is in these conditions. !!!!
