i removed my backpack and sat down when we entered the booth. the cop opened a large book and began reading the charges," driving without a licence, running a red light, speeding, going the wrong way down a one way street, endangering the lives of pedestrians..."

relief hit me like a brick in the face when i heard him say," 20000 rupiah." (about $18 australian.) i laughed loudly as i extracted a 50000 rupiah note from my bulging wallet, crushed it in my hand, tossed it in his direction and told him to keep the change.
