As ever doing the blog on an welciPad Wellis very difficult for an oldie like me I bet I'm the only omeperson in Jakarta without amobile phone. The flight was on time and the wheelchair and other luggage all driver fasafely in Jakarta. The in flight service was polite and friendly but on the dogs to Jakarta leg the food was awful and a glass of wine had about an half inch of wine in it. We got the money changed and bluebird taxi to hotel with no problem and being a Sunday and on the toll road traffic was minimal, I've already Sussex out the location of docks and main industrial area, trucks looked a bit samey but masses of them. Monday morning should see the city at its manic self. One of the northern get terminalis nearby we had a wander out after dinner, life with a wheelchair here is interesting but Mandy is very confident and resilient these days and everyone is friendly and helpful so the impossible is not so difficult. We are hoping we can get Mandy to the open top tour bus terminus I'll investigate tomorrow, I can it seems get my stored value card at this terminus and then explore the bus network, harmony station has dozens of get routes and several of the Dr tour bus routes passing through. I do need to see exactly where the light rail section under test is situated as it isn't shown on the main public transportmap. There is apical raillineoassj g near the hotel. The prices in western style hotels is small to us for the room but food is extortionate and alcohol really a major investment but thankfully our gin in the water bottle with tonic water for Mandy and orange for me has worked fine. Just us two and wedding party in the hotel, breakfast should reveal any other guests in the morning. So a public transport film day tomorrow and trucks on Tuesday then we hope to get Mandy a city tour if we can link I. To their routes and stash the wheelchair on board, smiles are abundant. It was nice to get the present shower of Facebook friend requests while confirming our site popped up and it was great for Mandy to see Berta her mother mentioned in cousin mark ashmores blog ref the theatre in Manchester. I think Berta would be pleased to see us as patrons of the royal northern college of music which in its old buildings in where I squatted and met my then girlfriends a flautist before starting Togo out with Mandy back in 1974. So gingerbaker has. Drummer his last, all these people from outer generation popping their clogs! Anyway a very modern Mercure hotel and comfortable, we got a great view looking back through a Dutch lifting canal bridge vetybsd repair but framed the hotel nicely. Cameraout tomorrow. everyone to get another trip with Mandy and myself searching around the world for items of transport interest. We have had a reply from Norman central salt lake on the parking charges from holiday in at Swansea , emailing politely the CEO seems to have invoked a response and a bit of backside kicking to get it sorted.
