Excerpt L: Loadstone

“Java is the green, temple-studded loadstone of Indonesia, a rough oblong of land swimming on its side under the equator, and held in place by a pair of huge urban anchors at either end of its muddy northern littoral – Jakarta in the west, Surabaya in the east.”

    I’m delighted to have been quoted! Thank you! I see you’ve been over the bridge to Madura – another fine place…

    Thanks, yeah I’ve done just one weekend roadtrip around the Island so far, caught some bad weather though so didn’t see as much as I’d like. I’m really enjoying reading your Indonesian stories and pleased to see Raffles and the British Invasion of Java has an ebook version as well.
