The coffee shop at the Pelni Boat Terminal Bataam

Well, not so much a coffee shop as a collection of crisps, biscuits,  chocolates and sweets laid out on a tarp and/or pinned to a crumbling wall.  The barista pours the powder into a plastic cup, tops it up with hot water from her pink thermos and voila !

Ye Gods above but Indonesian coffee is fantastic.  It’s STRONG, thick, creamy, sweet and de-licious.  It puts hairs on the hairs on your chest.

An open drain ran through it all, cool, photogenic dudes hung around, and cheeky and surprisingly saucy ladies too !  It was a cool haven under the trees as we waited to commence the lunacy that is boarding a boat in Indonesia.
