Day 14

As in other Indonesian cities many old buildings are abandoned in Semarang. Many Indonesians are convinced that these old buildings are haunted. But sometimes this superstition gets a political twist: in Semarang a Novotel hotel is built on a spot where a kampung was located, so the people had to be evicted and as a punishment the people of Semarang are sure that this hotel got haunted by ghosts.
