    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.

    Walked around the community a couple of times today. Very relaxing although lunch did take a while to digest. Not much other than that and avoiding going out for supper. I am still acclimatizing to the diet, time change and weather. What is that, no sympathy …

    Weekend in Jakarta

    ... good snacks we hadn't seen or heard of before! We're staying at Ezta's house this weekend, the lady we met in Lombok and stayed with for a few nights. We had to get a taxi to Ezta's office, which took ages because the traffic in Jakarta is really bad and as always the taxi driver didn't really know where he was going... What a surprise! Ezta then drove us back to her house, which is located in a really nice area of Jakarta. She shares a ...

Don't hope for the best that s/he knew what you are saying We debated about where to go and she definitely wanted to take me to old town or maybe chinatown but we really had to try out Segafredo Coffee at the Plaza Indonesia Mall. Once we set out the Saturday traffic was pretty intense that we decided to go to the other malls closer ...

    ... and would give a Westerner a compelling example and forced understanding of a highly populated place where everyone lives in the now, and are in similar living standards to each other. I live in a country that has taken a less than kind approach to Muslim communities and am now a visitor that does not represent my nation's government but the Americans that are welcoming and loving. Yogyakarta is the next place to visit and will be the final destination in Indonesia. ...
