Life on the road

Indonesia is a big country of course but often people never really realise that till they get here.

Pelita Jaya coach Fandi Ahmad told me recently about travelling to PSSB Bireuen and it taking 10 hours from the airport in Medan. So that is on top of a two hour flight!

Persema midfielder, and temporary defender, Robbie Gaspar, last week told me about a gruelling road trip back from Jepara to Malang which also took 10 hours along some of Java's finest road.

Last weekend Persita had a game at PPSB in the Premier League. The Tangerang side had a good record on the road thus far this season, gaining a number of victories up in the badlands of North Sumatra and Aceh. But they came unstuck at the weekend, losing 1-0 after a 10 hour trip that included flooding and an accident that left them stationary for a while.
