2004 was an extraordinary year, considering that I didn’t spend any days outside Europe at all… wow! This has not happened since pre-1995.
So on 8 January 2005 I and Caecil flew on Gulf Air to Jakarta via Abu Dhabi, and returned to Oslo on 4 February 2005. We spent the whole trip in Indonesia.
We stayed first at the Cibubur residence in Jakarta, then went by car to Solo and Madiun (via Java’s north coast), and finally drove back to Jakarta again.
