Indonesia 2009 印尼

Indonesia is covered in green
From the very far to the very close, and the very high to the very low
Remember green is the only color our Mother Nature sends her love to you

印尼满载着的 都是绿色
远的近的 高的低的 也是绿色
就是大自然要给你恋上的唯一颜色

Itinerary 行程 - Bali > Jakarta

I saw numerous motor bikes waiting for their next customers once I stepped out of the Denpasar airport when I arrived in Bali. I was kinda daydreaming when all of a sudden a muscular and dark-skinned motorist grabbed my backpack and signaled me to go, without any hesitation I leisurely hopped onto his bike, and then followed his not so powerful engine to head to the town centre. Along the way, I held very tight the belly of this unknown motor driver, that we shuttled through endless alleyways and passed by countless market stools, again and again, repeatedly and repeatedly, we kept shuttling through and passing by, still he couldn't find the place that I needed to go! Of course I was on fire, and this motorist was alerted of my anger, he then quickly made a call to ask for the direction, and shortly after I finally arrived at my lodging, a place that meant to be so close but we searched for so long.

My lodging Hidden Oasis Bed & Breakfast is an exotic building situated at the heart of Kuta, the bustling district of Bali, everywhere including the beach and the market could be reachable just by a short walk, it is indeed a pretty good choice for a cost of just around USD20 per single room per night. Kuta is definitely a busy tourist district, that all you see is packed crowd and all you hear is loud sound, in all places at all time locals keep on selling you all kinds of services or products, including manicure and massage and tattoo and more and more and more of you could ever thought of. Don't ever ask for tranquility here as it is impossible to find any.

一踏出巴里岛 (Bali) 的 Denpasar 机场,就看见数十辆机车停泊,等候接客。正当我还在迷惑,不知去向之际,一位黑黑实实的机车大哥二话不说就把我的背包拉起,并没感觉什么不对劲的我随即悠悠然然的上了他的机车,风驰电掣前往市中心。沿途,我抱着那位陌生的印尼大哥,穿过无数的窄路小巷,经过许多的特色摊档,重复又重复的穿梭,不断又不断的经过,就是这样,不断的重复穿梭经过,那个大哥还未找到我想要去的地方!最后,我当然发火,大哥也不敢蹉跎,立即拿起手机致电旅店询问方位详情。结果,我们秒速到达那个找了很久却又理应很近的地方。

我租住 Hidden Oasis Bed & Breakfast 是一所充满异国风情的旅店,位于巴里岛最热闹的 Kuta 区,无论海滩市集都可以徒步到达,单人房每晚就只需大约 USD20 的价钱,绝对是个不错的选择。在 Kuta 这个旅游区,不论黄昏早晚, 到处都是人群,到处都是声音。无时无刻都会有人在你耳边销售著不同的服务又或产品,美甲的按摩的刺青的又或是其他的等等等等。如果你想要宁静,是万个的不可能。

I traveled to the central part of Bali the very next day to walk away from the hustle and embrace the nature. First I went to the Monkey Forest in Sengeh to say hi to the little animals, then I arrived at Ubud to see the emerald green rice terraces, after that I visited Pura Luhur Tanah Lot, the very famous ancient temple that was being built on the top of a big rock by the seaside, and finally I dined with the romantic sunset at the very tranquil Jimbaran Beach.

为了远离烦嚣,翌日我前往巴里中部,走进大自然。首先上了 Sangeh 的圣猴森林公园跟小动物问好,再到 Ubud 尝茶欣赏翠绿梯田,然后拜访建于岸边大岩石上的海神庙 Pura Luhur Tanah Lot,最后踏进宁静的金巴兰海滩 Jimbaran Beach 与金黄日落浪漫进餐。

Although I did not stay long in Jakarta, I must recommend you my lodging Jakarta Bed & Breakfast for the sake of it. To be honest, the place is a bit old, but the deco is very stylish, it is indeed a very big mansion with a botanic garden and a swimming pool. Plus, the host is kind and funny, he is a retired diplomat who has a lot of interesting life stories to tell. In addition, the traditional Indonesia homemade cuisine prepared by the staffs was delicious, I enjoyed it a lot. The entire course of this genuine Indonesian experience costed me only around USD20 per single room per night, bet you must pay it a visit even if you only stayed in Jakarta for a night.

虽然我没有在雅加达 (Jakarta) 这个首都城市逗留多少时间,但是我必需为你推介我所入住的旅店 Jakarta Bed & Breakfast。老实说,它是有点陈旧,但装修独特非凡,拥有前后花园,加上私家泳池,确是一幢豪宅。另外,主人是前外交官,亲切有礼,与大家谈笑风生。再者,家仆所煮的传统印尼餐更是美味非常,令我再三回味。这套真正的印尼体验,每个房间每晚也不过是大约 USD20 的价钱,要是你要到雅加达,绝对应该考虑这里作为你的景点之一。

The traffic of Jakarta is horrible, just horrible, that you could hardly see any vehicles moving on the very busy road. Even though the very kind hostess successfully dropped me off at one of the airport shuttle station on time but my mind was still kinda unsettled due to the long drive. However, I started to feel calm and the world around me seemed to settle down when a street musician played us a soothing song inside the shuttle bus. Indeed, music always inadvertently touches one's heart.

雅加达的交通实在是非常混乱,非常挤塞。虽然好心的前外交夫人成功把我送到某个机场巴士上落点,但我还是感到有点动魄惊心。然而,当一位街头歌者在车厢内表演过后,确又好好的缓和了我的心情,以及周遭的忙乱气忿。音乐,总是不经意的触动人。
