Favorite thing: Ok , this was a hard one.
Our taxi driver (blue bird) didn't knew where Ragunan zoo was. Did he ever heard about the Pasut Primata Schmutzer?
Of course not. So I was pointing the way...But a white person can't possibly know the way in Jakarta - his belief.
Fondest memory: Finally I gave him a map (I took it from the hotel , another tip) and found the zoo.
We where used to have us drive up the primate center and I heard him talking to the receptionist. He said it was behind the giant Gorilla .
Djeezes , we are in Indonesia. The only native ape here is the Orangutan... This person was working in the zoo , and OK , I admit , it is an ugly statue , but to call it a gorilla...
(just another sad example from how interested people are in their own natural inheritance)
