Balinese Topeng specialist Carmencita Palermo visited DarahRouge for a quick trip and catch up. We took her down to Dago CarFree Day but unfortunately the police of Bandung and the government cave to the pressure of those who have cars and money and closed Carfree day early. CarFree Day for those who don’t know is a much needed four hours a week where the street on Jalan Juanda is closed and performers, exercise fanatics, jugglers and musicians gather and entertain their audience. We ran into Frans Prasetyo, an urban anthropologist who too was highly disappointed with the way Car Free Day was being managed.
