At 7:00pm, the North Sea Bar was dead. Except for Evert, a smiling Dutchman, 54, enjoying his tall green Heineken.
Evert has a business in Holland and lives with his twenty-seven year old girlfriend in Bandung. Soon to be married. (Where have I heard that one before?)
We chatted for an hour; I ordered some chicken fried rice. He asked me if I would like to meet his girlfriend's girlfriend. Era arrived quickly. And quickly we decided that we were compatible.
We decided that the next day we would hire a taxi for a drive to Tangkuban Prahu - The "Overturned Volcano" crater 30km north of Bandung.
