      Blue Bird is Indonesia’s answer to New York’s yellow cabs, and Bangkok’s hot pink ones.

      Hot off the airport, I was already greeted by locals trying to sell me their taxis to take me anywhere I needed to go. I was given a tip to only ride Blue Bird because it was reliable and it had a meter. So I saw a guy with a Blue Bird ID and I said I needed to go to my hotel so he
