Manda 25 September 2014: Menuju Rawa

Kekhawatiran semakin mencengkeram saya. Sudah lima hari saya tinggal di Manda menanti tumpangan perahu ke utara, tanpa hasil. Saya ingin tinggal lebih lama di Papua Nugini, masih banyak yang ingin saya pelajari di sini, tetapi visa saya hanya tersisa seminggu lagi. Saya harus ke Kiunga sesegera mungkin. Itu ibukota provinsi. Siapa tahu, visa saya bisa diperpanjang di sana. Atau setidaknya, saya bisa memikirkan jalan keluar meninggalkan negara ini dengan aman. Namun di tengah keterpencilan yang paling terpencil di Sungai Fly ini, apa pun solusi yang ada di pikiran, kita selalu dihadapkan pada ketidakberdayaan. Kemarin sebenarnya saya punya harapan. Satu perahu panjang dengan mesin 15 tenaga kuda merapat di Manda. Penumpangnya sepuluhan orang, mayoritas perempuan. Mereka datang dari Kuem. Desa itu beberapa kilometer di utara Manda, tetapi berbelok ke timur dan masuk ke rawa-rawa yang menjauh dari Sungai Fly. Kalau saya ikut mereka, memang meninggalkan Manda, tapi bisa jadi justru saya akan semakin terperangkap di desa yang dikelilingi rawa itu. Kemarin itu saya berjalan bersama Papa Leo ke bagian belakang desa. Dia sudah tidak sabar ingin membagikan pada penduduk cerita tentang nyamuk yang dia dengar dari saya. Dari dalam sebuah rumah, menghambur seorang perempuan paruh baya kurus dan sangat pendek, menyambut [...]

Grand Overland Voyage

Exactly ten years ago, I started my four-year overland journey. I started from Beijing with $2000, dreaming to reach South Africa. From an illegal visitor to Tibet until a journalist in the war ridden Afghanistan, this journey has changed my whole life. Today, I’m back to Beijing, my point zero. But journey is a point of no return; I’m not the same person anymore and my point zero is not the same either. That’s indeed a journey of life. [...]

Marukara 3 September 2014: A Dangerous Adventure with Indonesian Illegal Traders

The coastal region in the southern Papua New Guinea near the Indonesian border is notorious for the illegal cross-border trading activity. Indonesian traders often cross the sea border from Merauke in the west and venture to Papua New Guinean villages to do their unlawful business. This is a very dangerous journey, due to attacks from the pirates and possibility being caught by joint PNG—Australian border patrol. I could sense the over-cautious attitude in Herman—a Marind trader from Merauke, whom I saw one boat of three passengers floating on the sea near the Buzi village. Marind is a Papuan native tribe inhabiting Merauke, a big city and its surrounding regions at the Indonesian side of the border. Thus, as a dark-skinned and curly-haired Melanesian, Herman did not look any different from the PNG villagers in this area. It was Sisi who disclosed Herman’s Indonesian identity to me. Herman’s boat was heading from west to east, making a short stop in Buzi as he was to meet someone here. At that time, Sisi was about to cross the sea to Australia (Boigu island, only six kilometers away across Buzi), so she walked to the water and talked to Herman. “There is one [...]
