BOGOR, Indonesia -- This is a better view the homes in central Bogor. Up on the hill in the distance is the Pasar Anyar market. I visitied it, and found it somewhat claustrophobic -- and one hell of a firetrap. A few months after my return to the United States, the market was destroyed by a big blaze. Initial estimates reported nearly 78 killed -- but the death toll was lowered to 10 when investigators determined most of the "dead" were actually mannequins.
