    First jab done

    ...meaning the chance to have adverse effects is 1:1.000.000. The chance to die in an airplane accident is 1:5.000.000-1:10.000.000, and you would always choose Garuda over Lion Air, everything else equal.

    Bule living in middle class neighbourhood experience

    The biggest challenges will be sewage smell and low-octane-fuel smell from motorbikes, pollution in general and dengue mosquitoes. For rats, it is advisable to have a good alpha-cat with territorial instincts. It helped me at the time. Houses are usually dark. A power-hungry RT could be a...
