Malang, Smeroestraat 1937 (Smeroe Street, now Jalan Semeru). The original Dutch architecture is more than beautiful. The way it looks now is very disgusting. The left corner (up) corresponds with my photo left from 2006, the right corner corresponds with my photo right also from 2006. Absolutely tasteless treatment of heritage.
