Jakarta bomb blast

Got the news of the bomb blast in Jakarta this afternoon. One Kiwi was killed in the blast. My wife heard an interview on the radio with one of our close friends who was one of the Kiwi survivors in the JW Marriott Hotel at the time of the blast, packing his bags for his flight before breakfast.

He has written an account of the explosion here. Had he chosen to pack his bags after breakfast, he may not have been alive to tell the story, in which case it would have me along with others who would be preparing to pack bags.

Thanks Dave,

I appreciate that. It has been a terrifying experience for all of us who were there.
