My leaving party in February 1980


My leaving party in February 1980 - Diana, me and Bintang
Nurul, Mrs Salim and Erna behind

I worked on the construction of the Mandarin Hotel in Jakarta and other projects from September 1977 to March 1980.

I had several trips to Bali, usually with the hotel's interior designer Andrew S to view artwork for the hotel.

I became a regular hasher with the Jakarta Hash House Harriers and got my 50-run T-shirt. I returned for the Interhash in 1982.

I wrote a diary which fills ten A4 pads and took several thousand photos. I can't put everything here, partly because some of it is a bit personal.
