Aceh in the news today

Gah, my Aceh Google Alert has so much news today! (google alerts+me=BFF)

Links to the best bits:

I’m trying to recall if I ever met this guy from New Zealand at a party in Banda Aceh. Hot new destination!! Banda Aceh! Sun, surf, relative anonymity!! Perfect for relaxation and police evasion!

A less shady New Zealander residing in Banda Aceh is a HERO! We all knew that about Cas already….But now the Red Cross and the newspaper have confirmed it! (Cas also gave me tips on how to fall asleep once for which I am eternally grateful: Cover your eyes with your hands, lie on your back with your legs against the wall. Both instructions sound ridiculous but I’ll show you in person and it will make sense…and it works).

Andrew Bolt said some stupid stuff about Papuan refugees. The link to Aceh is minor, but I’m glad this ended up in my inbox. It’s like a jolt of caffeine first thing in the morning! Oh Andrew Bolt…I just want to scruff your hair up and give you a Chinese burn.

Care for another reason to dislike oil companies?
