Indo the Country (Part I)

A few weeks ago, I found out my company was having a board meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia, and they needed me to go and manage the video side of things. Awesome! So for the past couple weeks I’ve been arranging a video company in Jakarta, for the conference portion of the Board Meeting, and I’ve been arranging a driver for myself to travel around the area and get shots of video for other upcoming video projects, clips for our B-Roll library, and a bunch of other good stuff. So that’s to come.

I have decided all my posts from Indonesia will have some cheesy title somehow relating to Indo something. Please forgive me. The flight was long and I plan on using that excuse for awhile. Away!

(For those of you who do not know me, I have a fear of plane food. So usually once I get to the airport and past security, I buy a huge bag of food to last me the whole trip. Above is one such item. An airport cheese plate. Yes there is such a thing.)

Korean Air is spectacular. The food was awesome (I had Bibimbap twice!) and when I was about to miss my second flight, they alerted someone “on the ground” to escort me there to make sure I didn’t miss it, after bringing me up to “Prestige Class” for the last 20 minutes of the flight. I pretended I was there the whole time and looked down at the other passengers exiting in a stampede, while I floated out of my giant armchair and flatscreen through a different exit. Then I ran to catch my flight.

Finally, after three (one 1-1/2 hour, one 13 hour, and one 6-1/2 hour) flights, I arrived at the Jakarta airport where I was assisted by several nice Indonesian men in setting up my cell phone with a local sim. When the driver from the hotel finally found me, I was chatting with my new-found friends at a little cell phone hut in the airport baggage claim while my cell phone charged on one of their chargers.

More to come! Every day is an adventure-
