... than just shocking efficiency Motor down to the Fatahilah square in the old Dutch quarter. It is tourist central, although, to reach it you do have to make it past some serious traffic carnage.

As we approach the square it turns from crumbling slum, into something resembling a nice place to be. The transformation is staggering Into Djakarta Kedai Sen cafe for ...
