Free Newspaper Read



Except for advertisement bulletins, there is no free newspaper in this city. But that doesn't mean you can't read newspapers for free. You can certainly read them for free at the libraries, hotels, office lobbies. But here, you can also read the newspaper on certain bulletin boards on Jalan Asia Afrika street. These bulletin boards are located on the side walk in front of Pikiran Rakyat newspaper office. And as you may have expected, the board only carries Pikiran Rakyat newspaper.

Published in Bandung since 1965 and circulates mainly in the Provinces of West Java, Banten, dan DKI Jakarta, Pikiran Rakyat (literally: People's Ideas/Thoughts) is a major newspaper in the country and the largest in West Java and Banten.

Your nice photo makes me miss the nice bigness of a real newspaper on paper. Now I read the online newspapers, but it is just not the same.

Newspapers are in crisis, every where I guess. We dispose of so many medias today. People read the news on computers. But it doesn't replace an interesting article written by a clever journalist.

I have seen a few newspapers in France on boards in the past. No more today....
