Friday Focus 2
In the interests of saving energy, and because I've got a workday from hell, here are three links to explore. I'll leave off major editorialising for another time.
1. Green Aceh Conference
Banda Aceh June 21 - 23"Let's build Aceh without destroying its environment"
2. Bike2Work (in bhs. Indonesia)
In Jakarta? Brave souls.
3. The parakeets of south LondonEvery morning I'm woken by parakeets. They scream across the gardens at the back of our road, brash, arrogant, decked out in flamboyant bright green, the revved-up teenagers of the neighbourhood, except that no teenager would be up and about at this hour. On sunny mornings, as they whoosh past in sixes and sevens, I imagine I'm in the foothills of the Himalayas, where the Indian ring-necked parakeet originated. But this is suburban south London.
Why not Jakarta?
