到着早々ジャワ島へ

9月29日
午前中は書類整理。
午後にシンガポールに出張中のTさんがやってくる。
そこのホテルの物件に使う家具を作るための打ち合わせだ。
夜は『BALE BALI』の後カラオケ。
ここで、いきなり明日からジャカルタに行くことになる。
面子は先にBALI入りしていた某小売会社の社員Kさんと俺、そして俺の上司Nさん。

家具にしろ布にしろ、本当に良いものは実はジャワ島にある・・・
BALIの家具とか布とか、雑誌でよく紹介されてますが。
家具は大抵ジャワ島で作って、仕上げだけBALIで行なうというパターンが多い。
その理由はBALIが一大観光市場だからでもあるし、BALIの人がカーヴィングとか仕上げとかちょっと表面を繕う系の仕事が得意だからということでもある。
それ以前に家具の材料になる木がBALIでは採れない。
大抵ジャワやスラウェシからだ。

9月30日
スラバヤで乗り換えてスマラン空港で降りる。そして陸路ジュパラへ。ジュパラは木工の街だ。

Nさんから聞かされていたのは「ジャワは気をつけろ」。
治安状況がバリ島とは比べ物にならないらしい。
土ぼこりにまみれた道路、そこかしこに固まり無気力そうに通りを眺める人々。
なんとなく大きな戦争があった後のような感じがする
ジュパラへはタクシーで行ったのだが、これが曲者だ。
メーターを見ると平気で100キロ、時には120キロ出している。勿論道路は未舗装のでこぼこ道だ。
車線はあるにはあるが、誰も本気で守っていない。対向車が来たときにだけ車線の概念が生まれる。
こいつだけではない。全ての車がそうだ。
こいつらは命の捨て場所を求めているのか。
俺は同乗者達の恐怖を吸収して精神点に変換できたから何とか持ちこたえたものの、
NさんとKさんは到着したときにはくたくたになっていた。

夕食は現地の日本料理屋『漁師』。
バリにも何軒かある。
この店の成立には、実は日本国が関わっているらしい。
この辺りに日本の援助で新しく火力発電所を作る際、
指導のため技術者が大量に日本から入ってきた。
彼らのためにこの店は作られたのだという。
確かにホテルでもちらほらと日本人の姿を見かけることが出来た。
初老の男性が多く、旅行者という感じはしない。インドネシア語が出来る人も多そうだ。
まあ、インドネシア語は割りと簡単なので1週間もいれば旅行者でもなんとなく意味が判るようにはなる。
簡単と言う割には俺もまだまだだが。

インドネシア語には日本語となんとなく意味や語感が似通った言葉も多い。
ANDA:アンダ(=あなた)
KE:ク(=~へ行く)
MELAH:メラ(=赤)めらめらと燃える、なんて言いますよね
SEKALI:スカリ(=とても)すっかり

大本をたどれば日本とインドネシアは同根なのかも知れない。
