Meneer Janssen

November 12th Meneer Janssen (his nickname, real name is unknown) died in a tragic traffic accident in Bandung. Meneer Janssen did what many before him did but with altogether different consequences: Meneer Janssen stepped in one of the many holes in the asphalt, he tripped clumsily, he fell, and a car crashed him fatally. Meneer Janssen was born December 23rd 1974 in Anna Paulowna (small municipality in the Netherlands, currently 13,999 inhabitants). It is unknown what affairs Meneer Janssen had in Bandung in particular or in Indonesia in general. His remains remain unclaimed. (Witness drawing by R.E.Hartanto, the driver.)
