No, because you have posted far too little information.

Also, please note - if you post 4 threads with exactly the same stuff, you'll find them deleted, and perhaps get banned.

I want to visit their home area, but it seems they dislike too much contact with outsiders.
Still, their religion forbids violence of any sort, so I think it's likely to be safe enough.

That guy walks because he can't carry his stuff on a motorbike, if he can afford one.

These guys walk because they reject pretty much everything in modern society, including money, the internal combustion engine and shoes.
They wander around, without women because females aren't allowed to leave the village, bartering honey and semi precious stones for food.

I never realize those peoples are still around  :/

I see them from time to time, but I knew almost nothing about them.
I've been researching a little, and it's really interesting.

I also dream of many things, but most are illegal.
However, I generally get quite good internet at the moment, at least good enough for steaming youtube, skype and other normal stuff.
I was wondering what it's like in other areas of Indonesia, but it seems some bits of Jakarta have poor service.

Internet speeds

Until a year or so ago, my internet was seriously rubbish, managing 1mbps on a good day.
Then my provider, first media, started getting better, making the internet useful.
I bought a bolt, making my connection much better, now varying between 5mbps on a bad day, and up to 33mbps on a good one.
This morning I saw this.

I didn't test it, but it seems interesting. The security bloke told me it was available to schools, offices and such.

What speed to you get?

Yeah, sometimes the "echoes of the amplifiers" keep ringing in your head long after the gig.

Dude, they did with my amps.
I had enough kit to blast the ears of a whole football stadium, and often did.
You should have heard the stuff I used to blast out to test the kit; it was see ree us.

mas fred posted on the thread A day in the life ...... on the Indonesia forum

For the first time in a long time, I went out with the sole intention of getting a few interesting snapshots.
At 5.30, a took a shower (Hope that thought turns a few ladies on), then on my motorcycle with three cameras and a Samsung S5 (It had a very nice camera).
I'd heard a few of a nomadic tribe had camped in BSD so, with more hope than reality allows, I tried to find it.
As you'd expect when trying to find people that camp on night in the woods then move on, I failed miserably, but I did managed to get a few interesting shots.
My breakfast was taken in KFC, Serpong - A small but delicious chicken thing and a bottle of Aqua.
I went for a last little wander before I went home, and was glad I did because I saw something interesting.
You'll see it on my picture thread in a few days.

Girl, I'm old, boring, married and have hung up my leathers, otherwise I'd come over to your place and let you meet another wrong person.

IF he can get the paperwork, he still needs to find a school will to part with the extra cash they'll have to pony up over and above the cost of a local teacher.
I'm having a 'down' day today as I'm quite tired, so see no reason anyone else should enjoy themselves. :D

mas fred posted on the thread Thousand Islands on the Medan forum

Yep.
The beaches there are far better, but the landing is a killer on that short runway
It hit ground so hard, I thought the ruddy plane was crashing.

mas fred posted on the thread US Iphone 6 in Belgium? on the Belgium forum

I admit I'm a bit anti Apple.
Just thought I'd be clear and admit my bias.
I believe their products are overpriced, and they don't deliver the quality and wide range of abilities you get from the top Android units.

mas fred posted on the thread US Iphone 6 in Belgium? on the Belgium forum

Europe works on 220v, the US on 110.
Most chargers work with pretty much anything within that range, but check before you plug it in.

If you use the camera, check the specs before you buy. The iphones were seriously inferior to many other phones.
They may have managed to improve since I last checked.
