Back in Jogja

I arrived in Jogjakarta early this evening after an epic plane and
taxi trip via Solo, about an hour (in normal circumstances) east of
the royal city. We sat on the runway for almost an hour waiting for UN
planes to offload aid supplies at the terminal. It was hot in there,
but it's hard to complain about that kind of delay. Hundreds of
people were lined up against a chain link fence outside the terminal,
waiting for transportation out of the area. It's bad here. Looks
like the number of deaths could pass 5000.
