Lunch with Sutrisman (far left) last month

About a month ago I helped out New York Magazine with a piece they were pulling together on Uber taxi drivers around the world. Witnessing so much resentment on display at some US election campaign events lately I couldn’t help but think of one of the drivers I interviewed.

Dr Sari doing the rounds at Badung market in Denpasar.

Dr Luh Upadisari plucks what looks like a small football the colour of a tree frog from an embankment of fruit, holds it at nearly eye level before swinging around to me declaring, “that will be ready to eat by tomorrow”.
