OK, Jakarta is a huge, unfathomable city, difficult to negotiate with no real central focus and nightmarish traffic. We randomly picked the Bangka via Hostelbookers and turned up late in the evening after a negotiating a dystopian traffic jam from the airport. What a relief to find the B&B was more than we could have hoped for. A beautiful house in a quiet leafy suburb, close to the expat zone but a million miles from the chaos. The staff, Rico and Rini, are incredibly friendly and helpful and the owner, Mr Rama is The Man. Rooms are quiet, cool and comfortable, the place has good wifi and places to relax and the complimentary breakfast is well laid out every morning. Highlight of our four day stay was the personal guided tour by Rama. He knows and loves his city, speaks perfect English and took us around the place in an air-coned car with a good driver. We went everywhere, the best bit being the old docks where we went on board a big wooden trading schooner that was loading stuff for Sulwesi, quite the experience. We left Jakarta with a new. improved opinion of the place and at least three new friends. Hope to return one day. Top place.

Walking through the underground tunnel into the body of the Monas reminded of the similar walk to the Arc De Triumph ...

... I distinguished a lumpy shape like a large rock, about the size of a soccer ball. But as I aproached, the shape shifted and lurched in a way that was both shocking and grotesque. It took my startled senses a moment to realize that it was just a massive toad on the walkway. To my knowledge, toads are relatively harmless so I laughed it off and continued meandering through the garden.
