In other news…

  • If you ever owned a Datsun…well, you might be a bit old for the Australia-Indonesia Youth Association. But we can all share in some nostalgia as Nissan will soon relaunch the brand in Indonesia and other developing markets, catering to new middle class motorists with the super-cheap Datsun Go. A sign of increasing prosperity, for sure, but one wonders how Indonesia’s already traffic-choked cities will cope as car ownership becomes increasingly affordable.
  • Thanks to an AIYA Facebook friend who introduced us to Indonesia Tempo Dulu, a Facebook page which regularly sources and shares lovely old photographs and postcards from Indonesia and the Dutch East Indies. Have a look!
