Let it Rain

Filed under: Jakarta,Weather — scotsabroad @ 3:34 pm


Been raining heavily for over a week. A state of emergency called. The Presidential Palace flooded. Extensive flooding downtown but we have not been badly affected here in South Jakarta. Distressing footage on local television – it is always the poorest who are hit worst. Incredible photographs on BBC website. This one is so typical of the Indonesian way – garbage collectors have nothing to collect so use their carts to transport others through the flood water. The scooter rider sits on his machine and uses his handphone.


Who cares?
