Travel Indonesia Haiku - Hasanuddin Airport, Makassar (Sulawesi)
glittering like a jewel

in the evening skyline
As we drove from Makassar to the airport which is about 20km away from the city, we saw the glitters of the new and large airport. It practically takes over the skyline with its many lights. It really shows the other side of Indonesia which is surging forward in its development. In this world economic downturn, it is the only country in South East Asia that has showed a 4 per cent growth the last four months. That is really a miracle when Malaysia has a minus 5 per cent growth in the first quarter.
