"After couchsurfing a lot around the world on a cycling trip in 2011-2012, we decided to carry on with the idea of staying with people and sharing their lives, but this time for an art project where we would also work with the locals." - Couchsurfers Seb and Spag
The two Couchsurfers started a unique art project in a forgotten neighborhood in Jakarta, Indonesia. See how a simple idea turned into a project that inspired the local community.

Potluck Iftar & Mini Gathering of Couchsurfing Easterners

Dear Couchsurfing,

Thank you for the banner, t-shirt, stickers and wristbands. Here are some pictures from our last event, Potluck Iftar with CS Easterners.

To make the event more meaningful, we had presenters share their travel stories:

1. Fery spoke about his trip with his pregnant wife to Hongkong, Macau, Shenzhen and Beijing.

2. Jay told us about his trip to Aceh, the most western part of Indonesia.

3. Jae talked about his trip to Norway.

4. Diah on hitchhiking.

5. Thomas spoke about his homeland, Holland, and his city, Rotterdam.

CS Easterners consists of CSers who live and or doing activities in East Jakarta and nearby suburbs. There are many Couchsurfers here but not many events and those are mostly held downtown.

The event was successful with lots of food brought from group members. Stories were told and laugh shared. We even had our youngest member in attendance, Selena the daughter of Fery! Selena is two months old and seemed excited to be there.

I hope Couchsurfing can continue supporting local activities around the world.

Regards,

Monie

We are Tangerang Couchsurfers, Couchsurfing Banten, Indonesia (a suburban city from a capital city of Jakarta). Two weeks ago we decided to meet at Cisadane River Festival, an annual festival in our small city with a row boat race and Chinese culture. We did a canal tour that only happens during the festival.

Before this event we had done a museum tour, cooking class and food festival. 
This is the first time we used the Couchsurfing banner and we’re glad to promote our local community in a suburban area where most people haven’t heard of Couchsurfing. We want to continue growing this this local community. This way, our members don’t have to go to all the way to Jakarta to meet other Couchsurfers. There are unique things in the suburbs too.
Thank’s for a banner by the way!
