Last month, I thought it would be a great idea to make a list of the Top 10 Parks in Palembang. I have been looking around but after 16 days, I've only managed to find one other. And, its in the same neighborhood as the previous one.
At least this time there were some swings that could still be used and Aaron enjoyed that they were HUGE.
This park, just like the last, is in the Pusri compound. Pusri is a fertilizer manufacturer and is one of the largest employers around. EVERYBODY wants to work for Pusri. This compound is where they provide subsidized housing for all their management staff. Some of its other employees also stay there but they have to make applications. Its like striking the jackpot if they qualify. There is a marked difference to the environment upon entering the Pusri gates. Tarred roads, lots of shady trees, football fields, monuments, its own Hospital, Library, Community hall, PARKS. Houses are more modern, although I don't know what their sewer system is like.
So why aren't we living there? Because it stinks of ammonia! Not all day long but still, its a daily event.
