Chit-chat at the Warung

Conversation at a roadside food stall, while waiting for my tempeh to cook (imagine my half in very broken Indonesian): Bapak:  Where are you from? Australia? Me:  No, America. Bapak:  Oh...Obama is from here, you know. Me:  Yeah... Bapak:  He lived in Menteng. Me:  Menteng Dalam, right? Bapak:  Yes. Practically our neighbor. Me:  Do you know him? Bapak:  Hahahah.  I know him.  But he does not know me.
