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.

... 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 ...

... trip advisor) but they were expecting me. The hello meeting has been moved to 19:00 tonight. Not really up to exploring more. But the room smells of cigarettes! My room mate Yasmin arrived late in the afternoon, fresh from the plane journey. From east London, very easy to chat to, on her first trip on her own, now that her children have grown up and left the nest - slightly scared of what she has let her self in for but up for an adventure. We went down early ...
... to go see Monas.
Monas is the large gold-flame monument in the center of Jakarta. It is the National Monument and it stands out against the rest of the Jakarta area like the Washington Monument against the rest of the buildings in DC. It looks really nice during the day, especially with the sunlight reflecting off the gold and a large park area around the base like at the St. Louis Arch. At night Monas is lit up with colored lights like the ...
