Keeping in shape.
In many countries this is the season of over-indulgence, but not here. Jakartass Towers remains a nasi goreng
zone, albeit with a chloresterol-rich cake, which is OK by me as, according to this quiz
, gluttony is not one of the seven deadly sins I should be worried about. (I leave it to your imagination as to which one I scored 'high'.)
Jakarta will be quiet for a couple of days, possibly for as much as a week, but we're not going anywhere. Our Kid is, like a lot of kids around here, running a temperature and, as I type, is having a blood test at the local hospital. Hopefully he hasn't contracted malaria which has put an entire local family in hospital
Elsewhere it's good to see that local expats are already practising yoga.This version of the gundani requires considerable strength in the neck, shoulders and back requiring years of practice to achieve. It should not be attempted without supervision.
