Bob -- I agree. This is my 2nd time there this year (I was there in
March/April). Jakarta is a big smelly dump, but fortunately, I have a good
friend (YB1BG) who is a higher-up with IBM to look after me. Ham radio
does have some benefits.
Also, I'm part of an Indonesian-American group (World Bank/AID project),
so that helps. Most of the work is in Bali and east, not Jakarta.
IT can be very intimidating (I could tell you horror stories about customs
officials on my last trip...)
Hope all is well -- thanks for the message!
