Self-isolating in a bamboo forest
Abdullah wanted to return to his village
Location: Klaten, Central Java Province, Indonesia
to celebrate Ramadan
But worried he might be high-risk
he set up a tent in the forest
(SOUNDBITE) (Bahasa Indonesia) TRAVELLER IN SELF-ISOLATION, 42, ABDULLAH AL-MABRUR SAYING:"I see many benefits in isolating here by the riverbank. This is where I played as a child, 35 years ago. I love the environment, I like the river, I like the sight of nature.''
He's been keeping busy
cleaning up the river
and enjoying daily visits from his family
(SOUNDBITE) (Bahasa Indonesia) ABDULLAH AL-MABRUR'S WIFE, 37, SUSANTI SAYING:
"I support him because he is trying to keep everyone healthy and prevent people from gossiping about us.''
