The white marble Mosque in Banca Aceh, a present from the Dutch at the end of the empire.

The main park in Banda Aceh, the Dakota DC3 aircraft on the plinth was
the first aircraft bought and
run by Garuda Indonesian Airlines.

The bazaar in the basement of the modern shopping centre that
was completely burnt out a few months before.

I'm buying chilie key rings and Aceh fans
