As its new year I am sure you all need a bit of colour to cheer you up, particularly after some of my more gruesome posts recently. If you are languishing in post-Christmas poverty, having mortgaged your soul to pay obscene heaps of food and booze to wash away the pain of regular employment, let me at least offer you a hint of sunshine. After a few weeks in Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, buildings back home are going to seem rather drab. A love of bold colours from mosques to shopping centres certainly livens up the streets to an extent I didn’t see elsewhere in Indonesia. All those bright hues that you look at in the paint colour charts at the DIY shop and decide you are not brave enough to cover your dining room with are on extravagant display in most towns.
