Join Rowan and Louis this week as they take a ride on their locales’ most popular forms of transportation. For Rowan that’s a motorbike and for Louis it seems to be a donkey cart.
You can also check out Rowan’s post on Jakarta’s horrendous traffic here.
The Frying Pan #4: Bureaucracy
Rowan and Louis dive into the byzantine and busted bureacracies of Indonesia and Spain. It turns out joking about bureaucracy is a lot more entertaining than the actual thing.
Rowan also wrote a piece a while back on the remnants of Dutch colonial bureaucracy in Indonesia. You can check it out here.
The Frying Pan #3: Drinking
Rowan and Louis get together to discuss the age old nectar of the gods (booze) in their respective lands.
The Frying Pan #2: Holidays
In The Frying Pan #2, Louis and Rowan dive into a few holidays and festivals held in their respective locales, their meanings, traditions, and the amount of alcohol involved (or lack thereof).
