Vulture tourism; the 10,000 free tickets to Bali; arsenic and OJ

The Australian: Vulture tourists [October 24, 2005]

This article has an interesting analysis of the fortunes of tourism-reliant economies in the aftermath of terrorist and other tourist-scary events.

And here's how the 5,000 free tickets for non-Indonesians work:
"the chance to win free tickets to Bali on Garuda Indonesia's international flights will be given to foreigners living in Garuda Indonesia's international destinations (except Jeddah, Dammam, Ryadh) after first registering on Garuda Indonesia's website ( between November 10 and December 31, 2005. Drawn early in January 2006, the winner will receive free tickets valid between the dates January 8 till May 31, 2006."
I haven't worked out where on the website you register. This being Garuda, I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't got round to putting the registration page together yet.

A word of warning though if you do win and you're vocal about your support of human rights, particularly Indonesian human rights: don't drink the orange juice, and generally ask the cabin crew to eat or drink a portion of anything you eat or drink before consuming it. Can anyone tell me where the prosecution of Captain Pollycarpus Budihari Priyanto is up to? The photo is of Munir, the late human rights campaigner.

I've heard almost nothing new about the Munir trial, but I'm under the impression that the blame has been laid on the stewardess (of course), and the the bigwigs have not been indicted. Small fish fry, big fish go free - the Indo way.
