I was to remain in Indonesia for seven years. I learned to speak bahasa Indonesia well enough to communicate with market venders, bus conductors, shop-keepers and passing girlfriends. In 1992 I applied for a job to work for Saudi Arabian Airlines teaching Saudi trainee pilots and mechanics in Jeddah. Before leaving, I had known an Englishman who had become a Moslem and taken the name Suleiman. He was living at the Subud Centre in south Jakarta and had applied to go to Saudi Arabia as an English teacher, working for Saudia.
